About SafeBVM

SafeBVM™ is a small business founded and led by a diverse group of clinicians. Their mission is to prevent patient harm during manual ventilation. SafeBVM’s Manual Ventilation Improvement Program (MVIP) focuses on 4 pillars: assessment, education, skills competency, and safety/quality improvement. This turn key training program addresses every aspect of manual ventilation and ensures that the provider’s skills are sharp year round. MVIP includes implementation of SafeBVM’s award winning and recently FDA cleared medical device, the Adult Sotair Device, in the field to reinforce what they have learned and prevent patient harm. Sotair is the ONLY real time safety intervention offered on the market today for manual ventilation. It limits the high flow rates delivered from the manual resuscitator, minimizing complications such as gastric insufflation that arise from over-ventilation.
