What’s A Ventilator And What Does It Do

What Is A Ventilator?

A ventilator, also known as a breathing machine, respirator, or mechanical ventilation, is a medical tool that helps patients who cannot breathe on their own get sufficient oxygen. In other words, it provides support for the lungs in serious cases. Air is gently pushed into the lungs to help patients survive. Doctors often use this device for breathing issues that can be followed by many conditions. A ventilator is necessary for surgery and post-surgery as well. [1]
