The RPR ventilator was a great success in France following its introduction in 1955 and remained in use until the 1990s. Modifications of the device could deliver small tidal volumes at high frequencies and a version was later developed to provide the first mechanical ventilator for use with neonates and infants. 3 The Development of Portable Ventilators After 1960 Although a small ventilator had been produced by the American aviator Forrest Bird in the USA at the request of the US Armed Forces in 1956 later development of small portable mechanical ventilators took place largely in Europe, at a time when there was a steady development of large ventilators for use in the ICU in hospital.
Green and Janeway in New York produced artificial positive pressure ventilation via a box placed around the patient’s head (Fig. 8) These innovators coined the term ‘controlled ventilation’ since their machine could control the rate and volume of each delivered breath and could also apply positive pressure during expiration – a technique that would become a standard medical procedure in the later part of the twentieth century. The concept of controlled ventilation was the root from which all ventilation would develop in the latter part of the twentieth century 5.
3. Both the upper and lower airways create dead space. This is the proportion of the air during each breath which is not involved in gas transfer. 4. There are important sites in the anatomy of the respiratory pathway which are relevant to keeping it open and for the application of artificial ventilation • The nasopharynx, which can become blocked as a result of the patient’s position when unconscious • The larynx, which acts as a protective entry valve to the trachea and bronchi • The cricothyroid membrane and trachea which can provide sites for emergency access to artificial ventilation when the nasopharynx and larynx are blocked • The upper and lower bronchi which divide into 23 generations.
