Mechanical ventilation is a method to mechanically assist or replace spontaneous breathing. This may involve a machine called a ventilator or the breathing may be assisted by a physician, respiratory therapist or other suitable person compressing a bag or set of bellows. Traditionally divided into negative-pressure ventilation, where air is essentially sucked into the lungs, or positive pressure ventilation, where air (or another gas mix) is pushed into the trachea. There are two main divisions of mechanical ventilation; Invasive ventilation, and non-invasive ventilation. There are two main modes of mechanical ventilation within the two divisions; positive pressure ventilation and negative pressure ventilation.
