ventilator definition and meaning

What is a "ventilator"?

A ventilator is a medical device used to help patients breathe when they cannot breathe on their own. It provides oxygen-filled air into the lungs and removes carbon dioxide from the body. Ventilators include a pump and a breathing tube connected to the patient, with settings adjusted to match the patient's needs. They are essential in intensive care units (ICUs) and emergency settings for patients with respiratory failure, providing support until they can breathe independently again.

02

a device (such as a fan) that introduces fresh air or expels foul air
