Ventilation machines

ResMed manufactures a range of ventilators with invasive and non-invasive capabilities (Astral and Stellar), plus bilevel devices (Lumis), to help patients with respiratory insufficiencies breathe. These devices are used in hospitals and homes for various clinical scenarios:

  • Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is a form of mechanical ventilation where air is delivered to the patient through a mask or mouthpiece.
  • Invasive ventilation (IV) is used when sufficient ventilation cannot be achieved using non-invasive methods; air is delivered through a tube inserted into the trachea either by intubation or tracheotomy.
