Vintage A&J Resuscitator 1940's very very rare!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! My name's Nick. I collect anything and everything. Along my adventures I came across this A&J Resuscitator. It was used on an ambulance by your senior EMT's int eh 40's and 50's. I've only ever seen one and it was in the Boston museum. The one I have is in far better shape. It is for sale and will no disappoint. One of you guys deserves to have this fine piece of EMT history. Tanks are virtually like new, all paperwork still attached to the inside. It's such an amazing thing to think this saved a lot of lives back then. The pictures don't do it justice. The owners manual is still in there and everything! Open to offers. I paid a pretty penny for it.

Not nearly as rare as you may think.

Nor is it as old as you think.

They were in common use in the late 60's early 70's

I know where several of them are still in the original cases.

the lyport 1 came onto the market in 1967

the fiberglass case was introduced in the late 60's also.

I believe that is an E&J. We had one that came off of a retired apparatus. The interior device was trash, but the case looked new after some elbow grease with a "Magic Eraser". One of the members removed everything except the curved tank holders from the plate inside and uses it to carry his portable oxygen, etc., in. I believe the "Lytport" meant Lite and Portable. It may have been portable, but there was nothing lite about it. There's another one by the same company in the basement. It looks like a steamer trunk.

Sell it on eBay, they go for a pretty penny on there, too.
