[title] Bag Penetrator Flutter Valve Preparation
[* black] You will need a large or medium exam glove, rubber band, a bag penetrator flutter valve fitting, and valve deflector.
[* black] UseCut one of the ''longest'' longer fingerlongest fingers from glove and stretchglove. Stretch its open end over flutter valve fitting. Notice that the glove finger has a natural flatness. Also, the flutter valve penetrator has an elliptical end. Align flatness of glove finger with long axis of valve ellipse.

[* black] Ensure glove finger is advanced past the groove. Secure with a rubber band in the groove.
[* black] Cut off distal 1/2 of rounded tip of glove finger. Do ''not'' remove entire rounded portion of tip or valve action will be poor. After cutting, roll cut portion between your fingers to ensure cut end opens. If finger is cut properly, its end should naturally be flat and nearly closed in absence of airflow.
[* icon_note] If higher performance blower fan is used, you may need to cut off more of glove finger tip and enlarge bag fenestrations to accommodate increased expiratory flow.

Valving action is not intended as the primary inflow protection, continuous positive pressure is the main protection.
