Common QA When Using Ventilators

by len king on Mar 14, 2023

  • 01 What should I do if I'm not used to using a ventilator?
If this is your first time using a ventilator, there is no need to panic if you are not used to it. When you are awake during the day, you can just wear the mask and feel it for a while. After you get used to it, you can then connect it to the ventilator and lie back and relax after the ventilator is turned on.
  • 02 Can I still use the ventilator if I have a cold?
If you have a cold and your nose is blocked, it is not advisable to force the ventilator on.
  • 03 What should I do if I feel nauseous or vomit after using the ventilator?
Many patients, especially the elderly, use the ventilator soon after eating. This can easily lead to nausea, vomiting and other adverse reactions, which can lead to aspiration. Avoid eating or drinking too much before using the ventilator. If there are no special circumstances, it is advisable to use the ventilator at least 30 minutes to 1 hour after eating.
  • 04 What should I do if I wake up at night with a ventilator?
This problem may be caused by the pressure setting of the ventilator being too high or too low. It is also possible that the mask is not being worn properly, resulting in an air leak. Don't panic if you encounter this problem. You can contact customer service to adjust the pressure level and try it on again to check the effect.
