It is recommended that when Bag Valve Mask oxygen resuscitation is used, a minimum of two trained people provide ventilation for a non-breathing victim: one to manage the airway, mask and seal, and the second to operate the bag.
If two trained people are not available to provide ventilation for a non-breathing victim then mouth-to-mask breathing using a resuscitation Face Mask with supplemental oxygen will provide adequate oxygenation and ventilation
Please note: BVM Hand Resuscitator should be used by trained persons as it provides positive pressure lung ventilation, force-feeding air or oxygen into the lungs in order to inflate them under pressure. The Face Mask helps to prevent the risk of cross-contamination. It also can be connected to an Oxygen source.
