Ventilator facility

This machine helps babies who can not breathe on their own or who need help taking bigger breaths. High frequency ventilators give hundreds of tiny puffs of air to help keep a baby’s airways open. Ventilators can also deliver extra oxygen to the baby.

Neonatal/pediatric intensive care ventilators provide temporary breathing support to preterm and critically ill children who require total or partial assistance to maintain adequate ventilation. Some ventilators are specifically designed for neonatal/pediatric patients, while others–which we call all-patient ventilators–can ventilate the full range of patients from neonates to adults.
