Easy transportation of an intubated patient
Ventilation from a distance
The Micro BVM EXT tube is the latest invention by Micro BVM. The Micro BVM EXT is an expandable extension tube that ranges between 23 – 75 cm (9-30”). Unlike any existing accessory in the emergency medicine market, the Micro BVM EXT tube enables practitioners to transport an intubated patient with unprecedented safety and ease.
The Micro BVM EXT revolutionizes the way practitioners can ventilate patients. Today, practitioners must stand above the patient when ventilating with the Bag Valve Mask (BMV). With the Micro BVM EXT tube, the practitioner can stand at a slight distance from the patient. This provides a whole new level of treatment maneuverability. For example, if the patient needs to be moved on a stretcher or between hospital wards, using the Micro BVM EXT tube, the practitioner can position himself or herself up to 75 cm away and safely continue to ventilate the patient.
The Micro BVM EXT tube secures the airway. Once an airway such as an endotracheal tube (ETT) has been inserted and set, the Micro BVM EXT tube protects it from unwanted extubation, which may occur if the practitioner is moved or loses his or her balance. Using the Micro BVM EXT tube, the ETT is secured with a flexible tube that can extend up to 75 cm. This ensures that even if the provider’s hands move, the EET is secure and the ventilation is uninterrupted. Additionally, the T connector is very lightweight and does not pull on the ETT.
