Mechanical Ventilation & Patient Ventilation | ResMed
Ventilation

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.
