This mask is an aid in mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. It limits contact between the first aider and the casualty. The breathing mask consists of a plastic cloth with a one way valve which shows which side of the mask should face upwards (green), towards the first aider, and which side should face downwards (red), in the casualty's mouth.
- Clear graphic instructions printed on the cloth
- Size of the plastic cloth reduces the risk of the first aider coming into contact with the casualty's blood or vomit
- Mouthpiece design forces the first aider to open his/her mouth wide and press his/her lips around the casualty's to obtain a tight seal
- Large vents reduce resistance and help the first aider to maintain artificial respiration for longer period of time
