Of course, all medical professionals understand the importance of ventilation equipment. When patients are in life-threatening situations and are struggling to breathe on their own, mechanical ventilators become a necessity. No medical facility can afford to be without good ventilation equipment. Glenmed Professional Healthcare Solutions explains the importance of quality ventilation equipment.

Ventilation Is a Matter of Life and Death
Ventilators keep oxygen flowing into the body when a patient is struggling to draw breath on their own. These are not purely for patients who are suffering with bronchitis or pneumonia. There are much more serious pulmonary conditions to consider, such as COPD or cystic fibrosis. Patients with these diseases struggle to produce their own airflow. This is when it becomes essential to have good quality, high-functioning ventilators on hand.
A ventilator is a complex piece of machinery. Aside from the core components – essentially an oxygen tank and mask, together with machinery designed to move the oxygen into the patients’ lungs, they also include intricate parts, such as bacteria and particle filters, air pressure regulators, moisture traps, gas accumulators and more.
