<p> </p> <h1>L034-101R Elder Demand/Resuscitator Valve, with extension lever, 40 lpm flow rate</h1> <h2>LSP Elder demand valve manufactured by Allied Healthcare Products</h2> <p> </p> <p>The LSP Elder Demand/Resuscitator Valve is designed to provide 100% oxygen to a breathing or nonbreathing patient in an emergency situation. The valve is designed for use with a mask, endotracheal tube, tracheotomy tube or esophageal airway.</p> <p>The Elder Demand/Resuscitator Valve complies with AHA guidelines recommending that 100% oxygen be given to victims of a heart attack and/or smoke inhalation.</p> <p>The valve can be used in conjunction with a portable oxygen cylinder equipped with a pressure regulator or with a central oxygen source. The valve operates on a regulated oxygen supply of 40-60 psig (275 to 413 kPa) and reduces this pressure to a physiologically acceptable level with a pressure limit of 60±5 cm H2O. This prevents excessive buildup of intrapulmonary pressures and over-inflation of the lungs.</p> <p>The slight negative pressure created by a spontaneously breathing patient’s inspiratory effort triggers the valve from a non-flow state to a flowing state.</p> <p>The non-breathing valve permits it to be used as a resuscitator in combination with a manually operated button located on top of the valve.</p>
