The CPR MICROSHIELD-plus is the standard in barrier protection while giving rescue breaths during CPR. It was designed to meet two critical specifications, protect the rescuer and allow the rescuer to perform proper CPR according to the established guidelines and procedures as learned during class. Many devices require deviation from established procedures with complicated hand seal methods instead of the established mouth-to-mouth seal. The "plus" indicates the shield is the latest generation in face shield protection with a larger plastic barrier and a shorter bite block that accommodates pediatric patients. This one size fits all CPR MICROSHIELD-plus offers a 6” X 6” (15 X 15 cm) barrier shield along with a 2 cm bite block/airway tunnel that works for both adults and children. The filter, which provides additional protection, is located above the one-way valve to eliminate contact with the victim’s fluids. It also assists in keeping an open airway while performing the head-tilt, chin-lift maneuver.
This CPR MICROSHIELD-plus Tamper Evident/Resealable package is a smart packaging idea from MDI for its line of barriers. The tamper-evident pouch offers the assurance of a clean device in a resealable pouch. The package is a tough polyethylene bag with a zipper-type closure allowing the rescuer to become familiar with the device yet keep it in a clean recloseable pouch.
