A computerized ventilator will have a display panel, as well as an input panel where you can make changes to the setup and operation. Some of the ventilators may have special features geared toward its specialty, such as anesthesia. In addition, there is the mask and hose that will connect to the patient. These devices are sometimes mobile, and will have casters on their bottom to make wheeling it around the hospital or clinic that much easier. The emergency ventilator is typically just a bag, hose, and mask.
How ventilators work
The way the device works depends on the nature of the device. In emergencies, there are hand operated ventilators that you can use. These consist of a bag that you would place over the mouth and nose of the patient, along with a bag that you would hand pump to get air into and out of the lungs. These are for emergencies only, and they only offer a short-term solution. An actual computerized ventilator can offer long-term care for the patient. You will be able to indicate the correct parameters for use with the ventilator based on the specific patient. You can change the volume and flow frequency, and the air pressure.
A ventilator is a type of machine meant to pump air into and out of the lungs of a patient who is unable to breathe properly on his or her own. Another term commonly used with these types of items is respirator, even though there are differences between the two. A respirator is a mask that filters particles of inhaled air, while a ventilator is a machine that assists with, or performs, the breathing function for patients. It’s easy to see there is a big difference, and you need to remember this difference when you are looking up ventilators to rent, as you don’t want to waste your time wading through respirators
