What is a medical reservoir bag?

A Medical Reservoir Bag is a device that is designed to supply sedative gases to the patient during anesthesia. These grey latex bags are usually two or three litres in capacity and are placed behind the patient's head. These devices are reusable and are designed to last between 12 and 18 months. However, they must be properly cleaned and autoclaved after each session.

Activator member
An Activator member of a Medical Reservoir Bag is a device used to control or assist ventilation in a patient. The device is generally made of conductive rubber and is designed to be placed in breathing circuits. It is classified as a Class I medical device that is exempt from premarket notification procedures and subject to certain limitations.

When using a medical reservoir bag, it is important to follow the directions on the reservoir bag to ensure proper fit and operation. First, ensure that the mask fits correctly and that the reservoir is not overinflated. Second, it is vital that the patient avoids mouth breathing, talking, or facial movement while wearing the mask. Third, the reservoir bag should be checked periodically to ensure that it is properly inflated and the vacuum flow rate is working properly.

Positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) valve
A Positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) device is a ventilator accessory that helps patients breathe more easily. It works by increasing lung compliance, which is the relationship between changes in volume and changes in lung pressure. As a result, a PEEP device requires less air pressure to achieve the same volume of air. However, it can have adverse effects for patients who have a compromised airway.

Various factors can cause an elevated positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) in a patient. One of the most common causes is a malfunctioning pressure relief valve or a malfunctioning scavenging system. To avoid these risks, positive end expiratory pressure devices should be checked before being used.

A Medical Reservoir Bag is an airway support device that is designed to provide oxygen to patients with chronic airway restriction or physical trauma. It is made up of a mask with an elastic head band and nose clip that is connected to a non-rebreathing PVC bag with a nozzle that delivers oxygen to the patient. Exhaled gas is pushed back into the bag and collected there.

The stoma bag is inflated about twelve to sixteen times an hour. When the bag is inflated, the patient should feel the chest rise and fall as the air is expelled. Always use the lowest effective pressure so that you minimize the risk of gas insufflation.

A reservoir bag is used to store a liquid during maintenance or medical procedures. Reservoir bags vary in flexibility and can achieve different levels of pressure. One of the most common examples of a reservoir bag with poor flexibility is one used for a latex allergy patient. This patient had an allergic reaction to latex and the reservoir bag was not able to detect the leak during mechanical ventilation.

A faulty reservoir bag can cause gas leakage and system detachment. It can also contaminate the operating theatre during inspiration. When the reservoir bag is damaged, fresh gases enter the operating theatre through the ventilator and are diluted with atmospheric air. As a result, the patient receives a lower concentration of oxygen on inspiration and less of the inhaled anesthetic.
