  • Patent number: 4622964
    Abstract: A breathing valve having a valve chamber connectable to a gas supply and to a breathing device, a gas flow opening for exit of exhaled gases through which atmospheric air may be inducted into the chamber, a valve member in the chamber, a one-way flow opening in the valve member through which gas may flow from the chamber for breathing, and preventing return flow in the opposite direction, a movable valve closure forming part of the valve member movable into and out of sealing engagement with the exit gas flow opening, and a pressure responsive device in the valve member responsive to obstruction of gas flow into the chamber and further responsive to inspiratory effort by a patient to cause the valve member to move away from the exit gas flow opening for permitting air flow through the exit gas flow opening into the chamber for inhalation.
