The importance of mechanical ventilation and why there is a move to non-invasive treatment.

Ventilators play an essential role in supporting the respiratory system and breathing at several stages in a child’s life. The purpose of a ventilator is to ensure a child’s lungs receive sufficient air flow to deliver oxygen and remove carbon dioxide, while reducing the effort required by the child to move air in and out of the lungs (Tobin and Manthous 2017).
