Give breaths at a rate of 1 breath every 3 to 5 seconds.

A breathing barrier device should be used if providing rescue breathing to minimize the risk of disease transmission.
Because it is difficult to use a bad valve mask for one person as you have to squeeze the valve and seal the mask, it is easiest to use a pocketmask and give manual breaths.
prevent victim from vomiting
It is called a regulator.
The bag-mask device is not recommended for a single rescuer to provide breaths during CPR.
A bag valve mask (BVM) is not recommended for a single rescuer to provide breaths during CPR.
A CPAP device is used to treat patient with breathing problems. Usually apneas and most commonly sleep apnea or pauses in your breathing while sleeping.

Emergency Escape Breathing Device
Use a barrier device when giving rescue breaths to any victim in order to...A) prevent air from escaping the victim's lungsB) help regulate the amount of air you blowC) prevent victim from vomitingD) prevent transmission of infections
A barrier device such as a face shield can be used to prevent (or at least minimies) transfer of infection from the casualty to the rescuer and also from rescuer to casualty.
Assuming you mean Jacques Yves Cousteau - he invented the Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) device.

That question is not fully correct. When doing mouth to mouth rescue breaths, it is important to inflate the chest completely by blowing a strong breath into the patients mouth. In an infant or child, you are advised not to take a full breath in because any excess air goes to the stomach and is regurgitated in the form of vomit. If you are sufficiently trained to use a device that replaces rescue breathing (known as a bag-mask) be careful not to squeeze the bag fully as any excess air will travel down to the stomach and the patients stomach contents will be expelled through the mouth. This is not only unpleasant, it poses an airway obstruction threat. In summary, inflate the patient's chest fully and wait for it to rise down between each breath. You should only allocated a maximum of three seconds for theo two breaths before going back to chest compressions. Compressions are more important than rescue breathing.
a device NOT recommended is a oxygen tank or a heart jump starter i actually haft to know this because I'm a 2nt class in boy scouts and i did that 4 the tenderfoot rank.
The correct spelling is "respirator" (breathing device, or protective filter mask, also used for mechanical ventilator).
Then he wouldn't be a scuba diver since he wouldn't have his breathing device.
A snorkel is a breathing device that is used to dive in shallow areas of water. It has a goggle with a breathing tube attached so when a person goes underwater they can breath, but the tube has to stay above the water unlike skin diving.
Never heard ofa BVW. There is a BVM which is a Bag Valve Mask. This is the device you see people on tv using where they squeeze a bag to deliver breaths to a victim.
If a patient is not breathing it is also likely that their heart is not beating in a normal, effective rhythm or at all. The standard procedure is check if they are breathing - if not - they would begin CPR by performing 30 chest compressions for every 2 breaths into the mouth. Emergency personnel are also likely to have an automated defibrillator on hand - a device that when applied to the chest measures the electrical signals of the patient's heart and shocks them accordingly to try to restart the heart's normal rhythm - CPR is continued in between shocks. The patient would also likely have a mask on that supplies high concentrations of oxygen to help compensate for the lack of breathing or proper heart beat. The emergency personnel would likely administer this treatment in an ambulance while on their way to a hospital for specialist treatment.
