CPR Masks & Barriers
Being at the right place at the right time to help a cardiac victim by performing CPR is both rewarding not only for the gift of a second chance for the victim but also the sense of duty and accomplished for the responder. To make sure that contaminants are not passed along to the rescuer thus ruining the feeling good story, we have CPR Masks and barriers that protect the first responder during CPR. The CPR Masks, resuscitator and barriers we offer by Ambu Res-Cue are among the best for stopping the spread of germs and bacteria from one person to the other during the process of CPR. Be prepared!
CPR Masks/ Barriers are part of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) genre of emergency supplies. They are designed to protect rescuers from exposure to infection when in close contact with victims. HIV and the hepatitis family of viruses are carried in blood and some other body fluids. Since there is no way to know if the victim of cardiac arrest is carrying these or any other infectious diseases, it's wise to use some sort of a barrier device to keep body fluids out of the rescuer's mouth during rescue breathing.
