Chances of Survive On Ventilator

November 8, 2019

Many times a person becomes so ill that there is a need to keep him on artificial life support system. The ventilator is also the device of an artificial life-saving system. This device is given to the patient when the patient is unable to breathe by himself. Through ventilators, oxygen-rich air is circulated in the lungs of the patient and when carbon dioxide is released from the lungs, this machine pulls that gas out of the body as well.
In this way, the ventilator only keeps the breath moving. It does not cure the internal illness of the patient. But many diseases are such that in which the patient becomes so weak that he is unable to breathe by himself, then he is put on ventilator and his disease is treated properly. The ventilator keeps the breath of that patient and other side the proper treatment continues for his disease. When the medicine and injection improve the patient’s disease and patient gains some strength, then the ventilator is removed.
In many cases, even seriously ill patients recover again after the ventilator is installed. Many times a patient is put on a ventilator after the condition coma due to a blood clot in the brain. If the blood clot of that patient remains in small amount, then that patient becomes conscious after 4 to 5 days of placing it on the ventilator.
In the event of brain hemorrhage, the patient is put on a ventilator if he goes into a coma. If the patient’s brain vein is cured within 5 to 6 days while being placed on the ventilator, the chances of the patient becoming conscious increases.
It is very expensive to keep the patient on ventilator. There is a ventilator facility in government hospitals of India but it is used only for VIP people. For the general public, the facility of ventilator in the government hospital is negligible. However, the Kejriwal government of Delhi has run a lot of plans for the health of the public, in which there is a provision of providing ventilator facility to the seriously ill common person at a very low fee.
