Neonatal resuscitation kit, United Kingdom, 1951-1960
Some newborn babies have difficultly breathing and need extra oxygen – particularly those that are premature. In this kit a small gas cylinder would be connected to the rubber tubing, inflating the gas bag and delivering oxygen to the green face mask. A tool for removing mucus from the mouth, which may prevent breathing, is also included.
