Supporting someone with long-term ventilation needs

Finding the right care support for a family member with long-term ventilation needs can be overwhelming.  

In this blog, we will discuss the essentials of long-term ventilation and the importance of specialised care to help you make informed decisions for your loved one’s well-being. 

Understanding long-term ventilation 

Long-term ventilation is a medical intervention that assists individuals with chronic respiratory disorders, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, neuromuscular disorders, and spinal cord injuries.  

Long-term ventilation may be done with a tracheostomy tube or through using masks or nasal prongs, depending on individual needs.  

The importance of specialised care 

The success of long-term ventilation relies on a multidisciplinary team of skilled professionals, such as respiratory therapists, physicians, and nurses. Having a care plan in place will ensure a holistic approach is taken to your care and will put your wellbeing first.
