(Health-NewsWire.Net, March 25, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- Anna Loehwing, COO of First Aid & Safety, reports that the one-way valve on their Mini CPR Keychain Mask has a patented design engineered specifically to allow the administration of emergency breathing while maintaining separation between victim and rescue breather. "This advanced, one-way valve has been thoroughly tested and approved for use by the American Red Cross," says Ms. Loehwing. "The valve and the small, fold-out mask are approved by the FDA as a medical device." The valve ensures one-way airflow between the rescue breather and victim, allowing the administration of life-saving breath into the victim's mouth while prevents the return flow of air and fluids. "The purpose it to prevent contamination and infection," says Ms. Loehwing.
The fold-out mask provides a layer of protection from contact. The one-way valve, which is built into the the mask, controls airflow and handles the other aspect of protection for the rescue breather. "We made this mask to keep you safe," says Ms. Loehwing. "The most critical component, we believe, as a rescue breather, is getting the air into the victim without in turn putting yourself at risk. To do this we came up with this simple yet effective one-way valve, which allows the air while at the same time preventing backwash and even retching to come back to you. Retching is actually quite usual when a victim is resuscitated and comes around. Our mask slash valve combination shield you from that."
The Mini CPR Keychain Mask has instructions printed clearly on the front, describing how and where to place the mask, how to center the valve and how to pinch the victim's nose to ensure air enters the lungs. The mask is transparent in order to allow visibility of what is happening and how the victim is responding.
"The truth is it's on all our minds," says Ms, Loehwing. "A CPR emergency is chaos. Someone has stopped breathing and you need to act fast, yet you're also worried about your own protection. When a victim is not breathing time is critical. With one of these masks -- and they're so easy to keep on hand -- you simply grab it, unfold it and get to work. With this mask you can save a life and protect your own."
This CPR Mask comes in a strong red nylon pouch with a Velcro closure and an attached steel key ring. Made for durability. Comes on a keychain ring, shipped in packs of five (5).
The new Mini CPR Keychain Mask is now available on Amazon.
