It was reported that on b 6 , a lsr was being used as a backup on a patient with a tracheotomy. When needed, the lsr failed, but the nurse immediately replaced it with a spare resuscitator and there was no health hazard to the patient. According to the hospital, they found that the disk membrane was stuck to the patient valve housing. The hospital confirmed that they had not performed the patient valve portion of the function test described in the dfu, but they did rinse the lsr with sterile water after disinfection and reassembled it when dry.

MAUDE Adverse Event Report: LAERDAL MEDICAL, A.S. LAERDAL SILICONE RESUSCITATOR MANUAL RESUSCITATOR
A see through silicone mask, with a multi-function mask cover enables the user to see lip color, secretion, vomit and fogging caused by exhalations during ventilation. The one-way patient valve allows air to flow to the patient, without air from the patient reentering the ventilation bag. The swivel connector allows for more flexibility and enables the provider to ventilate in various positions. The see- through silicone Ventilation Bag provides excellent re-expansion, while giving the user a strong feel for lung compliance to reduce the risk of over-inflation. The integrated intake and reservoir valve can be connected to an external oxygen supply when needed.
