Why Try Our Reinflatible Training Masks

Our reinflatible masks are hard to beat.

 

Why should you try our reinflatible training masks? Because MCR Medical Supply’s re-inflatable training masks allow you to customize or refill your training mask’s air bladder! With the included syringe, you can add or remove air from the bladder, individualizing the CPR training pocket mask to best fit the contours of your manikin. Some of the benefits of this innovative mask will make you want to at the very least, try them out.

One big benefit is the ability to form a tight seal with your hands around the mask and the manikins face to confirm that your breath is entering the lungs of the manikin. This allows you or your students to make sure that they are properly exhaling into the lungs. Another benefit to this particular mask is the simple fact that you will never have to discard your masks when they go flat (given that they have not been punctured). All’s you have to do is simply use your syringe to inflate your mask to the volume or size you prefer. Our non-collapsible CPR training mask is a cost-effective solution for teaching CPR without using a more expensive rescue mask. Because the washable trainers are capable of being decontaminated per CDC guidelines, they’re reusable and help maximize your training dollar! This method will ultimately save you money and worry in the long run.

These masks are sold in a ten pack with a syringe and a complimentary pack of 10 training valves. We sell these masks for adults as well as infants and the mask’s stems are fully compatible with all brands of universal CPR valves.

MCR Medical Supply’s training CPR masks should be inspected and disinfected after use, replacing as necessary. The masks do not have an oxygen port and are designed for training purposes only.

Cross Contamination and One Way Valves

Reusing one-way valves is defeating the purpose of the valves and goes against CDC guidelines.

MCR Training Valves

We field many calls regarding the reuse of one way valves and we know that some instructor trainers demonstrate the re-use of these valves. This is defeating the purpose of the valves and goes against CDC guidelines. CDC guidelines DO NOT allow for one way CPR valves to be decontaminated. Period. This is true of all pocket resuscitator mask style valves from any manufacturer. The HEPA style filter inside the valve cannot be cleaned and disinfected without destroying the efficacy of the filter.

Anytime one way valves are reused, students are subject to cross-contamination. For example: Student A uses the one-way valve to practice breaths in CPR training. The instructor then takes out the filter and “sanitizes” it and hands it to student B. Student B then uses it to practice breaths with CPR training. The fluids that are in the CPR manikin’s lung bag from student A then gets inhaled into student B. That is cross contamination.

If cost is a concern when it comes to buying valves, then consider using CPR training shields. We offer 3 brands of shields here at MCR Medical at a cost of approximately .25 each.

We are available 9 AM to 5 PM EST Monday through Thursday and 9 AM to 4 PM EST  Fridays to answer
any questions you may have concerning our valves and shields. Please contact us
with any problems, concerns or questions you may have.
