Mechanical ventilation: Use of a machine called a ventilator or respirator to improve the exchange of air between the lungs and the atmosphere.
Nowadays technical solutions and medical devices allow to treat patients at home. Using ventilators and oxygen concentrators we are able to treat patients out of hospitals.
Long-term health care is long-term care provided formally at home. Ventilators allow to limit the stay of patients in hospital to the minimum. This kind of care is fully covered by National Health Service for patients requiring breath support. This solution allows adults and children to stay with their families at home.
