Effects of face mask ventilation in apneic patients with a resuscitation ventilator in comparison with a bag-valve-mask.

Abstract

Bag-valve-mask ventilation in an unprotected airway is often applied with a high flow rate or a short inflation time and, therefore, a high peak airway pressure, which may increase the risk of stomach inflation and subsequent pulmonary aspiration. Strategies to provide more patient safety may be a reduction in inspiratory flow and, therefore, peak airway… (More)
