Ventilation At Home

When it comes to healing and comfort, there is no place like home.

Home Mechanical Ventilation (HMV) is defined as an intermittent or continuous use of an HMV device through a mask interface (non-invasive) or a tracheostomy tube (invasive) at home.

Our team of physicians, nurses and respiratory therapists caters to patients of all age groups ranging from pediatrics to geriatrics. Regular visits are made by our physician and respiratory therapist to ensure patient is stable and does not require any escalation of care.

Our aim for the home ventilation patients is to achieve a fulfilling time with family in the comfort of their homes and to avoid respiratory complications and hospitalizations. These patients may be on continuous mechanical ventilation or intermittent mechanical ventilation and maybe using mask or tracheostomy tube as interface.

For our ventilator patients our home services include (apart from bedside nursing);

  • Regular visits from multidisciplinary team including the physician, respiratory therapist, physiotherapist and nurse supervisor.

  • Blood tests including and not limited to CBC, electrolytes and VBG/ABG if indicated.

  • Troubleshooting of mechanical ventilator.

Benefits:

  • Increased family and community integration.

  • Increased social interactions that enhance your loved one’s quality of life.

  • Reduced exposure to hospital-borne infections including MRSA/MDRO.

  • For children, living with their parents and family greatly enhances their normal development and the quality of their relationships with family and friends.

  • Medication Management – Supporting families in adequately stocking up of medical supplies & facilitating collections of the supplies where authorized

  • Back up Equipment – We have backup equipment of most frequently used equipment
