During periods of inadequate human respiration, artificial ventilation can satisfactorily assume the function of the patients breathing mechanisms in most situations. Such ventilation can be administered by mouth to mouth techniques, manual methods, or automatic devices. The purpose of this report is to discuss the physiological parameters governing the design of automatic respirators and to review the design of those currently in use.
