A CPR breathing mask is used during cardiopulmonary resuscitation procedures, which are used in emergency situations to supply oxygen and produce blood flow in the heart and lungs. Themask is used to ensure that infectious diseases, germs, blood, and other bodily fluids are not transferred from the resuscitator to the patient, or vice versa. There are many different types of masks on the market today which give rescue workers and those trained and certified to perform CPR a variety of safe and effective options when CPR has to be used.
The CPR mask is also known as a face mask. They are used to safely get rescue breaths to a person who is in respiratory distress or cardiac arrest. The unused mask is stored in a pouch or envelope. These are kept in first aid kits and many people carry them in their wallet or handbag. The CPR mask ensures safety by having a one-way filter valve in place. When the person giving breaths breathes in to the mouth of the patient the one way filter valve prevents any mucus, blood, vomit, etc from going back in to the resuscitators mouth.
