Ventilators (or respirators) are mechanical devices that help a patient breathe when they are unable to do so on their own. A respirator takes the compressed gas (oxygen) and mixes it with other gases. It allows you to artificially push in a certain required amount of oxygen into the patient’s lungs and allows them to deflate. India’s state hospitals together have 14,220 ICU ventilators as of now.
