Before CPAP, when a breathing patient in CHF needed airway support, the only way to help them was to place an endotracheal tube through the nose and into the lungs. "Very uncomfortable" is an understatement. The new MACS CPAP System from Airon Corporation adds the latest CPAP machine to your BLS or ALS toolbox. The control panel of the MACS CPAP System features a knob to adjust pressure and a large, easy-to read display of airway pressure. Plus, the unit's facemask is easy to apply and comfortable for the patient.
