Do CPR the right way
When push comes to shove, you need to do everything right to save someone's life. When it's time to do CPR on someone, a pocket mask helps you create adequate airflow into an ailing person's lungs - and that small difference could be lifesaving. It makes your job as a rescuer easier.
A must-have for lifeguards
Are you a lifeguard? Your title is your job description: you have to guard lives! Walking around with a CPR mask in your pocket or hanging by your neck is a must. You never know when someone is going to need help - and you need to be ready at a moment's notice.
A safe tool to save lives
It's important to note there are different rescue masks - but they all serve the same purpose: providing oxygen to an ailing patient. Some are mechanical, while others require human effort to work. Pick the right one for you!
Are CPR face shields effective?
Absolutely! Proper use of CPR face shields provides adequate ventilation to a patient and, at the same time, a barrier that protects both patient and rescuer. More often than not, someone suffering from respiratory failure or cardiac arrest is not someone you know, and it's important to prevent bodily fluids from transferring from one body to the other - that's what a CPR face is for.
Do pocket CPR masks expire?
A CPR mask has a shelf life of one to five years. After the five-year mark, it's time to buy a new one.
Check whether your mask can still do an airtight seal and has no cracks yearly.
If there's something wrong with your mask, it's time to buy another one - no matter how small that issue is.
Do you need a CPR mask?
Well, that depends! It's a fantastic idea for a lifeguard to have rescue masks in an emergency. Medical staff may need to own one as well. Other people may not need to walk around with one in their pocket - but it's never a bad idea to be prepared for the worst. Then again, it's fundamental to know how to do CPR if you plan to use a pocket mask when someone needs it.
What mask is used for CPR?
A pocket mask (also known as a CPR mask) is necessary for effective and safe mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
When a person is suffering from cardiac arrest or respiratory failure, using a pocket mask allows you to provide better ventilation to the ailing person. At the same time, those same masks offer a hygienic barrier between patient and rescuer.
