Laerdal Upright Resuscitator - A new approach to ventilations
The Laerdal Upright Resuscitator for Newborns has an innovative design that has been shown to help deliver more adequate ventilations per event than a standard resuscitator design*.
Delivering adequate ventilations during those critical moments of a newborn resuscitation event can be challenging. The Laerdal Upright Resuscitator is our next step of our long heritage of helping you, save lives.
The Laerdal Upright Resuscitator offers a new approach to ventilations. The ergonomic upright design of the bag and mask makes it easier for Healthcare Providers to seal the patient’s nose and mouth securely whilst delivering ventilations.
The Laerdal Upright Resuscitator only has 6 parts, which makes it very simple to assemble, disassemble and clean. At only 13cm when collapsed, it takes up a minimal amount of room and is easy to store.
The Upright’s silicone masks are newly developed to provide a more effective and secure seal over the patient’s nose and mouth. This helps the Healthcare Provider deliver more adequate ventilations*. The masks feature a firm top surface which is easy to grip firmly, with a unique pliable lip underneath which shapes to the patient’s profile for a secure seal.
