In order to avoid compromising between the patient’s needs and his own, Gary prefers to carry the Pocket BVM in his paramedic kit.
I have used the Micro BVM for a year now, it is so small, it allows me to carry full Paramedic ALS equipment with me on Search and Rescue Jobs together with my personnel kit, so I don’t have to compromise between the patient’s needs and my own, I can carry everything for me and the patient.
Its robust case protects the BVM from damage, so it can be used in the harshest of environments.
All my team at Community Paramedics seem to like it also, as the Micro BVM is so much smaller we can carry extra kit so can provide a higher level of care, than otherwise would be the case.

"On May 23rd, my partner and I went to the first call of day. The radio control reported that there was a unconscious person. Upon arriving at the shopping center, we found a male approximately 65 years old suffering from a cardiac arrest. We immediately started the chest compressions and it was then that I opened and used my Pocket BVM. I was very surprised by the ease of use of the device and how quickly it assembled. The Pocket BVM fits perfectly in any compartment of the trauma bag. To start CPR, we asked for help from an advanced unit that arrived with a physician and continued with the maneuvers. The patient recovered from the cardiac arrest, but unfortunately passed away later."
