Mechanical ventilation is used most commonly following major surgery when haemodynamic variables are being normalized. 2 The other major groups requiring ventilation are patients with head or chest trauma (<10%), poisoning (<8%) and the critically ill with severe primary respiratory disease (<13%). 3 As gas enters the lung, part of the pressure required overcomes flow resistance within the branching airways and part of the pressure is related to the elastic properties of the system (Fig. 2). The stiffness of the lungs and chest wall is the compliance of the respiratory system.
New cases overwhelmed the capacity of the 25 27 28 31 acute hospitals. A transfer of technology from industry to medicine occurred with a speed of development that would be unlikely to be possible today. What emerged were devices that were robust and simple. Indeed, for many years these original characteristics applied to most ventilators. Important events in the 1960s and 1970s changed the potential for ventilation. First, the flow of gas delivered to the patient was controlled directly from a valve that could be opened and shut rapidly.
