Allied Healthcare Demand / Resuscitator Valve
Allied Healthcare Demand / Resuscitator Valve The LSP Demand/Resuscitator Valve is designed to provide 100% oxygen to a breathing or non-breathing patient in an emergency situation. The valve is designed for use with a mask, endotracheal tube, or tracheotomy tube. The Demand Resuscitation Valve complies with AHA guidelines recommending that 100% oxygen be given to victims of a heart attack and/or smoke inhalation. The valve can be used in conjunction with a portable oxygen cylinder equipped with a pressure regulator or with a central oxygen source. The valve operates on a regulated oxygen supply of 40-60 psig (275 to 413 kPa) and reduces this pressure to a physiologically acceptable level with a pressure limit of 60±5 cm H2O. This prevents excessive buildup of intrapulmonary pressures and over-inflation of the lungs.
