Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The International Ventilator Users Network is a nonprofit network of mechanical ventilation users, respiratory health professionals, and ventilatory equipment manufacturers. Its focus is on the health and independent living of ventilator users, whether they are using assisted ventilation long-term - at home or in nursing facilities-or short-term in emergency rooms and critical care units. Many ventilator users have neuromuscular conditions, such as respiratory polio or post-polio syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, spinal cord injury, or congenital central hypoventilation syndrome. Historically, IVUN's efforts have been primarily addressed to ventilator users with neuromuscular conditions. But people who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or obesity hypoventilation syndrome may also need to use assisted ventilation.show more
