Vital Signs pioneered the development and introduction of a variety of single-patient use products. In 1975, they commenced the marketing of clear, non-conductive anesthesia breathing circuits. The first clear plastic, single-use air-filled cushion face mask for anesthesia delivery and resuscitation was launched by Vital Signs in 1981. They were the first organization to introduce a single-patient use manual resuscitator in 1984. The first single-patient use laryngoscope system for use in the anesthesia and critical care arenas was developed and launched by them in 1988. Vital Signs also developed a general anesthesia kit, which can combine over 20 disposable items in one convenient, cost-effective package, and the first single-patient use infant resuscitation circuit with an adjustable pressure limiting valve, used to protect the infant's lung against over pressurization.
