The intensity of the incident was extremely challenging as we knew that if our intervention was to be successful on these trauma patients our efforts had to be implemented immediately, efficiently and accurately. Thankfully our efforts were in fact blessed with success. Having your Pocket BVM in my ALS tac-med response kit was a key element of this success. My gear gets a rough treatment on the back of my ambucycle, the fine dust, grit and sand that we have to contend with gets into everything but I still need my equipment clean, sterile yet ready for immediate deployment. The tough high-visibility case, compact design and ease of use make the Pocket BVM one of my favorite pieces of rescue gear. Kudos for developing a great product.
