Review of the Pocket BVM by Kelly Grayson
The Micro BVM is a full-functional adult BVM with mask, oxygen tubing and reservoir, fully compatible with most aftermarket PEEP valves. The manufacturer touts it as being 75% smaller when stored than a standard BVM.
Product review in Polish by Daniel Suchodolski
Pocket BVM (Bag Valve Mask) to kompaktowy resuscytator dla osoby dorosłej (powyżej 40 kg m.c.) który umożliwia prowadzenie prawidłowej wentylacji ręcznej. Niewielkie rozmiary opakowania 13 cm średnicy i ok 6,5cm wysokości nie wpływają negatywnie na jego funkcjonalność. Waga całości to 465 gramy.

10 items I carry in my Vehicle Trauma Bag
When it comes to carrying around medical gear in my personal car I am a minimalist… I am now that is. When I was a new medic I pretty much drove around in a rapid response ambulance/trauma bay.
Pocket BVM review by TangoMikeTM
A bag valve mask, abbreviated to BVM and sometimes known by the proprietary name Ambu bag or generically as a manual resuscitator or “self-inflating bag”, is a hand-held device...
Pocket BVM review by Kari Dickerson
I eagerly awaited the arrival of my PocketBVM. I love various gadgets and things, so the idea that a company ‘reinvented the wheel’ so to speak piqued my interest and I had to get my hands on a PocketBVM.
Pocket BVM review by Dan Walsh

When Space Matters As Much As Performance by Dave Konig
Space saving in Event Medical equipment bags is important. You do not want your single posted provider’s response delayed due to needlessly bulky or heavy equipment that limits their maneuverability and hinders their ability to reach the patient.
Gary Eves, Director Community Paramedics
I have used the Micro BVM for a year now, it is so small, it allows me to carry full Paramedic ALS equipment with me on Search and Rescue Jobs together with my personnel kit, so I don’t have to compromise between the patient’s needs and my own, I can carry everything for me and the patient.
Tim Gray, Managing Director Destination Medicine
A warm hello from South Africa, just a short note to say thank you for the awesome product, we have incorporated quite a few into our ambulance and rescue service here in SA.
Tzvikah Bergstein, Paramedic
For 14 years I worked as a paramedic in MADA- Israel’s National Rescue Organization. From the first time I was exposed to the Pocket BVM, it was clear to me that this was a product that was needed in the field.
Issac Hacmon, Paramedic
My name is Isaac and I am a paramedic supervisor and member of the United Hatzalah ambucycle based fast response team. I was recently at a scene of a multiple-casualty terror attack in Israel requiring simultaneous intubation of 2 seriously injured patients.
Jordan Benjamin, Snakebite Medicine Specialist and Herpetology
I am a herpetologist and wilderness medicine specialist. I have used this BVM in my field bag for wilderness/remote medicine applications for several years now.
Dana Timbrook, Board of Directors Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Disaster Aid Response Team
The Pocket BVM greatly improves the in-field quality of medical support provided by our teams: while still light and compact, the Pocket BVM is capable of efficient operation for extended periods.
Zev Wimpfheimer, MD FACEP
Department of Emergency Medicine Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem
We used the device for over 2 hours during a complex aero medical evacuation of an unstable patient. Needless to say, equipment durability is paramount during such circumstances- and the Micro BVM Ambu stood the test.
Robert Gromley, SCUBA and diving first aid instructor
I am an instructor of recreational SCUBA and diving first aid in the United Kingdom. Having used the Pocket BVM and the Pocket BVM with 02 tubing for training in both the classroom and onsite, I am convinced that they have a place in diving resuscitation.
Dmitriy S., Senior instructor of Russian University of Spetsnaz 22
I want to express my sincere gratitude for the Pocket BVM product. For more than 6 years I’ve been using this product in many hot places, med service, search and rescue operations, training courses.
