The BVM Select™ manual resuscitation device.
Care 2 Innovations has developed the BVM Select manual resuscitation device. The BVM Select allows the user to adjust the ventilation volume to match the size of the patient, thus eliminating problems associated with over-inflation.
The Challenge / The Solution
The Problem with Current Manual Ventilation
Recent studies clearly indicate that the medical community has been causing serious if not fatal over-inflation of the lungs when manually ventilating patients using a bag valve mask apparatus. This barotrauma causes rupture of the alveoli, increased gastric distention, and diminishes the ability for the heart to circulate blood.
“As a researcher I have been acutely aware of the need to develop a product that can be used for all sizes of patients including the pediatric patient , where excessive ventilation can result in gastric distention which decreases diaphragmatic excursion and ultimately results in hypoventilation, aspiration of stomach contents and poor outcome.”

BVM Select™ – The solution to over ventilation
The Solution to Over Ventilation
Care 2 Innovations has developed the BVM Select manual resuscitation device. The BVM Select allows the user to adjust the ventilation volume to match the size of the patient, thus eliminating problems associated with over-inflation. The BVM Select is also designed to work effectively on any size patient, from infants to large adults, which eliminates the need for multiple bag sizes.
