Study on the Upright Bag and Mask Published
Dr. Monica Thallinger has recently published her research comparing Upright with a traditional bag-mask resuscitator.
The study compared ventilation properties and used preference between the new Upright Bag and Mask with a standard Laerdal Newborn Resuscitator.
Tanzanian nursing school students and Norwegian Medical students with no prior experience in Newborn resuscitation used the devices on a manikin with ventilation parameters monitored by the Laerdal Newborn Resuscitation Monitor.
The study showed that Upright had a lower mask leakage than the standard bag and that it was preferred by the study participants.
