Bag Valve Masks & Resuscitators
Bag Valve Masks for Emergencies
Resuscitation masks and bag valve masks (BVM) are used for resuscitating patients in emergency situations or during patient transport in an ambulance. In our online shop, you can purchase bag valve masks from Ambu, Söhngen and many other manufacturers, at affordable prices. More about resuscitators & bag valve masks

Resuscitation Masks for Emergency Resuscitation
Resuscitators serve the manual ventilation of patients with apnea or insufficient respiration. Since the bags and masks are operated without an energy source, they can even be used to provide artificial respiration for patients who are normally connected to a ventilator. e.g. in the event of patient transportation or power outages. As a result, ventilation masks are standard emergency equipment in emergency or critical care medicine and first aid.
Since the lung volume of adults, children and babies differs, bag valve masks are available in different sizes. Reusable resuscitators are usually used with single-use masks that are bought separately, while disposable bag valve masks are available as ready-made sets.
Ambu Bag - The Classic from Denmark
The company Ambu is one of the leading manufacturers in the field of resuscitation. With the Ambu Mark IV bag valve mask, the company presents a durable and high-quality product for medical professionals, that is available in two different versions - one for adults and one for infants and babies. The Ambu Mark IV is has a double-chamber structure to allow the user to see the ventilation pressure during resuscitation. This technique protects the patient from excessive ventilation pressure, which could cause bloating of the stomach or regurgitation and aspiration.
In addition to the reusable Mark IV bag valve mask resuscitator, we offer the Ambu Spur II that is disposed of after use. It does not need to be reprocessed in order to prevent infectious transmission between patients. Of course, the Spur II is available for adults, children and infants. Depending on the version, the disposable resuscitators differ not only in the size of the reservoir bag, but also in valve size.
With Praxisdienst, you can buy the original Spur II and Mark IV Ambu bags from Denmark, as well as the appropriate accessories.
Bag Valve Masks with PEEP Valve
Many bag valve masks are either directly equipped with a PEEP valve or they can be used in combination with one. The valve creates positive end-expiratory pressure and increases the functional residual capacity and the gas exchange surface. This improves the oxygen saturation during ventilation.
Oxygen Reservoirs to Increase Oxygen Concentration
The oxygen reservoir is connected to the manual resuscitator when a higher oxygen concentration is needed during ventilation. The oxygen is led through an O2 tube into the O2 reservoir, where it can be used for the patient.
While adult BVMs are used with reservoir bags, infant and baby BVMs are generally used with reservoir tubes.
Order Bag Valve Masks at Affordable Prices
In the Bag Valve Masks & Resuscitators category, you will find a large selection of disposable and reusable masks from name brand manufacturers, like Ambu or Söhngen, at affordable prices. The majority of our products are made from silicone, which makes them particularly durable, hard-wearing and temperature-resistant. Additionally, we offer the suitable consumables and accessories, such as patient valves (PEEP), bacteria filters and laryngeal masks. In the Secretion Aspirators category, you will also find manual and electric aspirators to prevent airway obstruction by removing foreign bodies from the patients airways before ventilation.
