[title] Bag Penetrator Flutter Valve Preparation
[* black] You will need a large or medium exam glove, rubber band, a Halo bag penetrator flutter valve fitting, and valve deflector.
[* black] Use the ''longest'' longer finger from glove and stretch its open end over Halo flutter valve fitting.
[* 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 to accommodate increased expiratory flow.
[* icon_note] Valve is not intended as the primary inflow protection, continuous positive pressure is the main protection.
