Sizing And Fitting Of The LifeVac Mask

The LifeVac kits comes with various sized masks to match the most common range of patients i.e. child (x2), small adult (x1) and large adult (x1). [Picture 1]. An extra-large mask is also available. The additional small adult mask is included for practice using the device prior to emergency use.

It is important that the mask is fitted to the face with the mouth in the open position when using the LifeVac. To ensure proper sizing the mask should be test fitted to the patient prior to operation of the device.

Note: Although the illustrations show the coloured plastic rings, these should be removed prior to the actual use of the device.

1Firstly, approximate the mask size visually. 2Slide the nose (narrow) section of the mask seal around the bridge of the nose.
3Rotate the mask against the face, ensuring the lower seal sits between the chin and lower lip [Picture 3] of the patient (with the mouth open). If the mask does not properly match these two landmarks an alternate mask should be selected.. 4Once the correctly sized mask has been selected, and it is firmly attached to the LifeVac plunger unit, the mask should be held firmly to the patient’s face using one hand (the index finger and thumb around the centre port of the mask . [Picture 4].
