A medical ventilator, also called respirator help, pushes air into the lounges of a human. Ventilators are used for example in intensive care medicine for artificial ventilation or in home care to treat sleep apnea. Modern devices use intelligent circuits to mix the gas or set a fixed or modulated speed of the fan based on the input from sensors. The ST solution contains all semiconductors needed as well as certified software libraries to allow silent and reliable operation.
