A part of the Evolution series, this article traces the developments made in respiratory ventilators. This article was published as a two-page spread in Medical Dealer’s digital magazine in 2010 in their April issue.
This article documents the evolution of the respiratory ventilator from the first effective demonstration of mechanical respiration through asphyxiating animals in 1908, development of the iron lung in the late 1920s to the creation of the volume-cycled 3-PV that first used ventilation through positive-pressure in the early 1970s. These ventilators were then used as the foundation for today’s more complex respiratory ventilators.
