The meditech marine range is designed to give marine users a product range of oxygen resuscitation and therapy products. The range is now designed to be used with the BS pin-index medical oxygen cylinders. This gives compatibility across a vessel or fleet making it easier to ensure oxygen is available in an emergency and allowing easier refilling or the use of rental medical oxygen cylinders. Cylinders are also available to purchase from Meditech.
The range consists of:
• Microvent Mariner rescue resuscitator.
• Microvent Sailor resuscitation and therapy kit.
• Meditech oxygen cylinders.
The meditech marine range is available through selected distributors offering quality and consistent service to their customers.
Automatic resuscitation during rescue
• Extended duration from twin supply cylinders
• Patient harness holds set securely to the casualty
• Helps keep the airway open while breathing for the casualty
• Suitable for use in non-breathable atmosphere
The microvent mariner kit is designed for use in an emergency when breathing has stopped or respiratory assistance is needed. It can be used with a rescue stretcher or to deal with a complicated rescue where the duration of normal resuscitators is insufficient.
A casualty/patient harness helps to move casualty, stretcher and resuscitator safely – together. Head harness and hook ring hold the resuscitation face mask to casualty during rescue. The head harness is retained to the casualty harness preventing loss. Integral head positioning feature helps keep casualty airway open during rescue.
The microVENT has a remarkably efficient use of oxygen, that long duration is doubled by operating from two cylinders – often over 90 minutes. The oxygen cylinders are automatically used one before the other and the system also enables continuous use of the resuscitator while an empty cylinder is exchanged.
