PRE-HOSPITAL SIMPLIFIED AUTOMATED VENTILATOR The SAVe is an automated BVM that delivers an AHA compliant tidal volume of 600 mL at 10 BPM for 5 hours. This frees up the medic to give compressions, start fluids, treat other injuries or ready the patient for transport. A single on/off switch eliminates the guesswork and operator error associated with BVMs and overly sophisticated transport ventilators. The SAVe has been in use on the battlefield since 2007. It is ideally suited for situations where the use of pressurized gas is inadvisable or unavailable, or where size, weight, ease of use and portability are a consideration. Forward deployed field medics, mass casualty incident coordinators within the DHS and EMS professionals will find the device well suited to their needs.
