The International Ventilator Users Network (IVUN) has a developed the Home Ventilator Guide compiled by Judith R. Fischer. The comprehensive resource displays technical information about the world’s home ventilators in charts that are easy to read and makes comparing home ventilators more convenient. It features bilevel positive airway pressure ventilators, volume-cycled ventilators, pressure support ventilators, and combination or multi-mode ventilators.
The Home Ventilator Guide was made possible by a bequest from ventilator user Ira Holland. The guide also contains quotes from consumers about some of the ventilators, in acknowledgement of Ira’s life-long commitment to advocacy on behalf of his fellow ventilator users to help improve ventilator technology.
