The microvent sailor kit is designed for use in an emergency when breathing has stopped, when breathing assistance is needed or if oxygen therapy is required.
At the heart of the kit is the microVENT resuscitator. This is an oxygen powered resuscitator that can be set to automatic or used manually.
The microVENT has a remarkably efficient use of oxygen, as long as 45 minutes or more from one cylinder.
The microVENT case is reinforced and padded to hold and protect the equipment. It is fitted with twin carrying handles and a shoulder strap. The resuscitator can be swiftly carried to the casualty.
The brass oxygen regulator fits to pin-index medical oxygen cylinders. It has a BS schraeder connection to power the microVENT. There is also a multiple flow therapy outlet for supplying the therapy
Medical evidence published in August 2000 highlights the advantages of resuscitating with 100% oxygen and lower oxygen flow rates. These minimise the risks of gastric insuflation, vomiting and subsequent aspiration while still providing oxygenation. microVENT® sailor can easily be used for the 30 cardiac compressions to 2 ventilations now recommended for CPR and wastes no oxygen when not ventilating the patient. microVENT® sailor is as easy to apply as a pocket mask, both hands can be used to hold the mask in position and maintain the patients airway.
