Mechanical and patient ventilation

The goal of mechanical and patient ventilation is to:

  • improve the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the patient's blood and the air in the patient's lungs.
  • support the patient's work of breathing1 when his/her own physiology fails.

ResMed offers a broad range of mechanical ventilation options for invasive and non-invasive applications to suit different patients and care settings.

Our total suite of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) solutions includes therapy devices complemented by masks that incorporate the latest comfort and performance technologies, patient management software, accessories, training and service.
