  • Causa
    There have been some reported cases where the flow diverter used in these products is being cracked. the flow diverter is the blue adaptor that attaches to the patient valve. the flow diverter directs the patient’s exhaled breath to atmosphere or into a peep (positive end expiratory pressure)valve where a peep valve is being used. a cracked flow diverter can affect the peep valves ability to hold peep. as the flow diverter is on the expiratory side of the breathing system there is no effect on the resuscitators ability to deliver gas to the patient. additionally, in the event of a cracked flow diverter, there are two discrete one way valves isolating the expiratory side from the inspiratory side. thus there is no pathway by which any foreign material could enter the inspiratory side of the resuscitator. a cracked flow diverter has no affect upon the resuscitators ability to deliver gas to the patient.
