Manual resuscitation is a form of artificial respiration that uses a breathing bag (manual resuscitator) to assist patients with breathing. It is usually used when the lungs are not functioning properly.
The breathing bag is filled with oxygen and is squeezed by hand by the doctor, nurse or respiratory therapist. You may also hear the members of the ICU staff refer to the breathing bag as an Ambu bag.
Once squeezed, the bag self-inflates. One end of the bag is attached to an oxygen source and the other end to a facemask or breathing tube.
