Abstract


Hospital department for lung ventilation, structured so that the functions of distribution of respirable gases, which are delivered to patients, is managed centrally through distribution networks of these gases. And also the aspiration of the gases exhaled by the patients is carried out by suction networks. The aspirators and compressors that act on the aforementioned networks are located in different places and separated from the hospital wards.

The patient monitoring and lung ventilation setting functions are also replicated in the control room separate from the hospital ward.

The structures and organization described are intended to reduce the risk of contagion for medical and nursing staff within the lung ventilation departments.
