Coronavirus is continuing its deadly spread and some of the victims are relying on ventilators to survive.

More than 472,760 people have been hit by the disease across the globe and the demand for life-saving machinery is increasing.

What exactly is a blower?

Ventilators are life-saving devices. They help patients who cannot breathe properly by pumping air into the lungs. This machinery carries oxygen to the lungs and body, and helps to remove carbon dioxide.

How Do Fans Work?

A blower is connected to the patient through a tube placed in the mouth or nose. In some cases, patients may have surgery to open a hole in their neck so that the tube is inserted into the trachea.

Severe cases will require a ventilator to be able to transport enough oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Without one, the patient may die.
