The Augmented Infant Resuscitator (AIR) is a low cost add on to the Bag Valve Mask (BVM) resuscitation equipment. The AIR device monitors ventilation and provides instant, objective feedback on;
- The effective face mask seal
- Patent airway
- And correct ventilation rate.
The AIR device provides health workers with objective feedback so they can build, practice and maintain their ventilation skills and confidence.
AIR also, logs resuscitation data for quality improvement and program monitoring and evaluation.
Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) training is effective in preventing deaths related to Intrapartum Hypoxic Events but HBB training with AIR is even more effective.
