plastic head bag (for oxygen delivery)

  1. I used to work in a hospital in Canada that used, what they called "head bags" for oxygen delivery - same idea as a oxyhood - only they used a plastic bag.....I was talking about it with some RT's that I was working with and they could not believe it - never heard of it....has anyone had any experience with this - can get me info on it?
    Thank you.

    I've never heard of a plastic bag. Sounds odd, IMO. Post a picture if you can.
