The HypaGuard Pocket Face Mask is a small easy to carry device used when delivering CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) as a barrier between the patient and the person delivering the aid, preventing direct contact between face, mouth and nose. Air is administered to the patient when the First Aider exhales through a one way, replaceable filter, protecting from cross infection from the patient’s potential saliva, vomit or blood.
