Ventilation for paediatric patients

As compared to adult breathing patterns, those in children are characterised by smaller tidal volumes (10mL/kg at birth) and an increased respiratory rate (40 bpm at birth, decreasing to 20 bpm at two years). ResMed ventilators have been specifically designed for paediatric respiratory needs.
