The Oxylator from Primedic is a combination between a bag-valve mask and a portable ventilator. Designed to be operated by either lay rescuers or EMS personnel, it is powered only by an oxygen cylinder, with no electricity required. This device basically acts as a pressure-controlled ventilator, leaving EMS personnel with free hands to take care of other life-savings tasks.
The Oxylator is affixed either to a facemask or a more invasive airway device such as an LMA or endotracheal tube, and with the touch of a button, it begins delivering a preset pressure in the range of 20-45 cm H2O. In addition, there is an audio-visual alarm that alerts to increased pressures that can occur if more head-tilt/chin-lift is needed in the case of mask ventilation or if the tube slips into the right mainstem.
See the video below of the Oxylator in action, complete with German subtitles and funky music.
