August 23, 2018  Source: Ddu 124


A medical ventilator is a machine built to assist breathing in patients who are unable to breathe on their own accord or need support to maintain sufficient ventilation due to a disease, trauma or effect of drugs like anesthesia.

Medical ventilators are not only used in ICUs of hospitals but are also indispensable equipment in operation theatres for surgeries performed under general anesthesia and emergency departments or ambulances. A ventilator functions by using pressure to blow air into the lungs. The lungs’ recoil mechanism usually enables the patient to exhale by himself but the ventilator can assist the patient if his/her lungs are incapable of doing so.

The Ddu ( team offers a variety of medical ventilators suitable for use in the above settings. A number of ICU ventilators and emergency ventilators are available for sale on the website. As per the consumer’s healthcare setting, an apt ventilator can be selected from the given choice.

ICU ventilators are classified based on the medium they use, the portability, the screen size and number of modes available in the ventilator. Emergency ventilators are basically differentiated on the basis of their portability, whether they can be used in ambulances, public places or transport.
