Rondex had its beginnings in 1978 with the introduction of a Mouth-to-Mask device for ventilating the patient during CPR. It occurred to us in those early years that direct mouth contact with the patient can be very difficult because of the high occurrence of vomiting during CPR.
During the 1980's we witnessed another concern about doing direct Mouth-to-Mouth ventilation. The United States Center for Disease Control, CDC, considers blood, saliva or any body fluid or secretion as potentially infectious. Many people trained to do CPR have reservations about having direct mouth contact with a stranger.
The U.S. Department of Labor (OSHA) passed a law on December 6, 1991 which requires employers to furnish CPR devices and gloves to those employees trained in CPR.
The vision Rondex had nearly 20 years ago of an inexpensive device to avoid direct mouth contact during CPR is now widely accepted and under some circumstances, required by law.
