Abstract

The bag-valve-mask or the manual resuscitation bag is life-saving equipment. This article explains its construction, functioning, and limitations. This article also attempts to clarify some common misconceptions such as whether a resuscitation bag can be used to preoxygenate or provide continuous positive airway pressure or positive end-expiratory pressure and the highest percentage of oxygen that it can deliver.
