What is a One-Way Valve of CPR Face Mask？
One-Way Valve of CPR Face Mask is a small valve that is built into a CPR face mask. Protects the rescuer by allowing uni-directional airflow from the rescuer to the victim. Placement of the filter above the one-way valve protects the integrity of the filter from fluids.
The one-way valve is designed to allow air to flow in one direction only, which means that when the rescuer delivers a breath into the mask, the air will flow directly into the patient’s lungs and not back out through the mask. This helps to prevent the transmission of any airborne pathogens, such as viruses or bacteria, from the patient to the rescuer.
- It can be used with breathing mask, and can be changed quickly after use
- Smooth surface without burr, plastic selection of food grade plastic
- PVC material, latex free
- Transparent shell, easy to observe vomit, blood stains and natural breathing of patients in the mask
How to use it?
Insert the one-way valve into the CPR face mask, make sure the gas doesn’t leak out from the valve, and blow in so that the air flows in only one direction to the patient’s lungs and doesn’t flow back out.
Is the one-way valve disposable?
Yes, the one-way valve in a CPR mask is typically disposable and should be replaced after each use. The valve is designed to prevent cross-contamination between the rescuer and the patient, as well as to protect both parties from potential infections. After using the CPR mask, the valve should be discarded and the mask should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before it can be reused.
