Laerdal silicone resuscitator with mouthpieces


First manufactured in 1970, the Laerdal Silicone resuscitator is part of the apparatus used during defibrillation to simulate breathing, forcing air into the lungs and allowing the expulsion of carbon dioxide. Whilst defibrillation attempts to restore the rhythm of the heart, the resuscitator is used to maintain the supply of oxygen to the blood. Laerdal continues to supply resuscitators to hospitals.
