The Butterfly BVM is designed to prevent hyperventilation using a novel, rate-limiting mechanism.
The rigid design allows the user to maintain a seal and squeeze the bag with just one hand.
ADJUSTABLE TIDAL VOLUME
Unlike bag-valve-masks currently on the market, our device can adjust to treat any size of patient.
Compact and ergonomic, the BBVM is designed to be easy to store and for user comfort.
INTEGRATED PEEP VALVE
Known to enhance resuscitations, our built-in PEEP valve will save you time and money with the turn of a dial.
Each device is used on just one patient. We're working on a recycling program to help save Mother Earth.
