PVC Manual Resuscitator

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) manual resuscitator, made from durable polyvinyl chloride, is essential in emergency and medical scenarios for providing artificial ventilation. It consists of a squeezable bag, a face mask, a one-way valve system, and an optional oxygen reservoir. This device allows adjustable airflow control, ensuring tailored ventilation for patients who can't breathe independently.

Features of PVC Manual Resuscitator

  • Standard with gas storage bag, PVC anesthesia mask, oxygen tubing.

  • Accessories such as oropharyngeal airways, and lifting straps can be freely selected.

  • 100% medical grade PVC material.

  • 2.1m oxygen tubing.

  • Latex-free.

  • Airbag for Adult is 2000m, pediatric and infant both are 1600ml.

  • Set 40cm H₂O safety pressure limiting valve.

  • Integral intake manifold design, direct connection to air storage bag and oxygen tube.

  • The non-slip effect of the rough surface of the recovery balloon can give the rescuer good operability.

Basic Construction and Working Principle

  1. Material: Typically made from durable polyvinyl chloride (PVC) to ensure safety in sterilization and repeated use.

  2. Components:

  1. Bag/Balloon: This part is manually squeezed by the user to provide airflow.

  2. Face Mask: Fits over the patient’s face to ensure the air goes directly into the patient's airways.

  3. Valve System: Controls the direction of air flow, including a one-way valve to ensure air flows in only one direction.

  4. Oxygen Reservoir Bag/Tank: An optional accessory used to increase the concentration of oxygen inhaled.

  5. Connecting Tube: Connects the bag to the mask, transferring air.

Function and Usage

  1. Artificial Ventilation: Provides necessary respiratory support to patients who cannot breathe independently.

  2. Emergency Use: Used during Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), especially in pre-hospital emergency care.

  3. Controllable Ventilation: The operator can adjust the frequency and depth of ventilation according to the patient's needs.

  4. Versatility in Scenarios: Hospitals, ambulances, public places, etc.


  1. Operator Training: Requires professional training before use.

  2. Regular Maintenance: Regular checks and maintenance are needed to ensure functionality.

  3. Single Patient Use: Generally recommended for single-patient use for hygiene and cross-infection concerns.

  4. Preventing Over-Ventilation: Over-ventilation can cause lung injury to the patient.

Common Questions (FAQ)


Q1:How to Sterilize a PVC Manual Resuscitator?

A1:Sterilization of PVC manual resuscitators should be done according to the manufacturer's instructions. Generally, they can be sterilized using autoclaving at a specific temperature and pressure for a set duration. It's crucial to disassemble the parts, clean them thoroughly, and dry them before sterilization. Avoid using harsh chemicals that may damage the PVC material. Regular sterilization ensures safe and effective use, preventing cross-contamination.

Q2:What is a Manual Resuscitator Used For?

A2:A manual resuscitator, commonly referred to as a bag-valve mask (BVM), is a hand-held device used to provide positive pressure ventilation to patients who are not breathing or not breathing adequately. Its primary function is to deliver breaths manually when a patient has insufficient respiratory effort or when mechanical ventilation is not available. This device is crucial in a variety of settings, including pre-hospital (like in ambulances), during transport of critically ill patients, in emergency rooms, and in intensive care units. It is especially vital in cardiac arrests and respiratory emergencies. The manual resuscitator ensures that oxygen-rich air is delivered to the lungs, thereby maintaining adequate oxygenation and ventilation until more definitive airway management can be established or the patient recovers sufficient spontaneous breathing. Its use requires proper training to ensure effective and safe delivery of ventilation, as improper use can lead to complications such as lung injury or inadequate ventilation.

Q3:Can the PVC Manual Resuscitator be Reused?

A3:Yes, PVC manual resuscitators are designed for multiple uses, provided they are properly cleaned and sterilized between patients. The durability of PVC allows for repeated use without significant wear, maintaining its functionality. However, it's essential to inspect the resuscitator regularly for any signs of damage or wear and replace it if necessary to ensure patient safety and optimal performance.

Q4:What is the Lifespan of a PVC Manual Resuscitator?

A4:The lifespan of a PVC manual resuscitator depends on its usage and maintenance. With proper care, regular cleaning, and sterilization, it can last for several years. Manufacturers often provide a recommended lifespan, but frequent inspections for signs of wear or damage are crucial. If any component shows signs of deterioration, it should be replaced immediately to maintain the device's integrity and effectiveness.
