Bag-valve-masks have changed little since they were first invented in the 1950s. That's why we've invented the Butterfly BVM™; a giant leap forward for manual ventilation.



Tidal Volume Dials.png

Giving patients a precise volume of air is not easy, but with a turn of the wheel you can restrict the Butterfly BVM’s maximum air output to match your patient’s needs. Pediatric model is set to Broselow and Handtevy standards.


PIP Dial_edited.png

Worried about barotrauma? Our PIP dial overcomes the need for a manometer while giving lifesavers unprecedented control over the pressures that they deliver to patients.


PEEP Dial.png

You wouldn’t drive a car without airbags. So why would you use a BVM without the ability to add PEEP? Our integrated PEEP dial allows users to choose PEEP levels between 0 - 20cmH2O and comes standard on every model of the Butterfly BVM™.


Inflation Switch.png

Have you ever seen someone give too much air to a patient? We have, and that’s why we’ve designed the inflation rate control switch to reduce the risk of hyperventilation. Need air more quickly? Just throw back the switch and keep doing your thing.



CPAP Cap (standard): Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to give CPAP without having to switch to a different device? Well now you can. Just engage the CPAP tab (shown in red) and activate the PEEP dial to administer continuous positive airway pressure (compressed air source required).

BioFilter (optional): Worried about COVID? Our optional biofilter blocks the passage of viruses and other pathogens from patients to providers.
