A resuscitator device is a medical tool used to manually maintain an oxygen concentration above 90 percent in the lungs of patients who have lost consciousness.
It’s typically attached by a mask or tube directly onto one side of your face, under the nose and mouth. It will release air that has been pressurized with additional Oxygen molecules (O2) until you start breathing on your own again. It keeps up what supply there may be left while actively clearing build up..
