pocket mask

pock·et mask

/pok it mask, mahsk/

Noun

A mask that allows the provider to administer mouth-to-barrier ventilation. The pocket mask contains a one-way valve that reduces the chances of being exposed to the patient’s secretions and communicable diseases. In addition, some masks have oxygen ports that can increase the amount of oxygen being delivered to the patient.
