King Systems Ergo Mask

Bag-valve mask (BVM) ventilation is one of the most basic and, at times, most difficult EMS skills. The ability to maintain an open airway with proper head-tilt/chin-lift with one hand, while you squeeze the bag to ventilate the patient with the other, often becomes an issue of technique as well as hand size. In fact, during many resuscitations, this becomes a two-person job. TheÜErgo Mask fromÜKing Systems has severalÜfeatures that make BVM ventilation easier for the solo provider. By moving the ventilation port off center, a contoured hand ridge with thumb and index finger grips allows you to easily maintain proper chin lift and maximize ventilation all at once.Ü
