The Ambu Bag Rubber Adult Italian Type is a medical device used for manual ventilation and resuscitation of adult patients. It is commonly referred to as a “bag-valve-mask” (BVM) or “self-inflating bag” and is made from high-quality rubber material. The Ambu Bag is designed for single-patient use and is an essential tool in emergency medical settings, hospitals, and clinics to provide immediate respiratory support to patients experiencing respiratory distress or cardiac arrest.
- Rubber Construction: The Ambu Bag is made of durable rubber material, which allows for easy compression and re-expansion of the bag during manual ventilation.
- Patient Valve: The device is equipped with a patient valve that opens during inhalation and closes during exhalation, ensuring a unidirectional flow of air or oxygen to the patient’s airway.
- Oxygen Reservoir: Many Ambu Bags come with an integrated oxygen reservoir to deliver a higher concentration of oxygen during ventilation.
- Transparent Design: The bag is transparent, allowing healthcare professionals to observe the bag’s compression and expansion during ventilation.
- Adult Size: The Ambu Bag Rubber Adult Italian Type is specifically designed to provide optimal ventilation to adult patients.
- Emergency Resuscitation: The Ambu Bag Rubber Adult Italian Type is primarily used in emergency situations for manual resuscitation and ventilation of adult patients experiencing respiratory distress or cardiac arrest.
- Airway Management: The device is used to establish and maintain a patent airway in adult patients who cannot breathe adequately on their own.
- Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR): The Ambu Bag is an essential tool during CPR, allowing healthcare providers to deliver breaths to the patient during chest compressions.
- Post-Intubation Support: After intubation, the Ambu Bag can be used in combination with an endotracheal tube to provide manual ventilation support during transportation or while waiting for mechanical ventilation to be established.
- Transportation: The Ambu Bag Rubber Adult Italian Type is often used during patient transportation, ensuring continuous and effective ventilation during transit.
- Pre-Hospital Care: Emergency medical responders and healthcare professionals use the Ambu Bag in pre-hospital care settings, providing immediate respiratory support before reaching the hospital.
