There is smog in the air and it will continue for about a month. It has triggered serious health problems for all age groups, especially children and the elderly.
Air pollution is at the root of the global burden of respiratory and allergic diseases, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia and possibly tuberculosis. A few recent epidemiological studies have made it possible to recognize the emerging importance of air pollution linked to traffic in both developed and less developed countries. In addition, continued emissions from household fires burning biomass fuels mainly in the less developed world can lead to poor respiratory conditions. because patients with respiratory problems are more likely to suffer due to increasing levels of air pollution. Some extreme cases can lead to the use of ventilators for treatment. The pandemic has already caused many respiratory problems making organs weak. So it is an alarming situation to take good care of often neglected organs in the human body like the respiratory organs. In an exclusive conversation with Financial Express Online, Ashok Patel, CEO and Founder, Max Ventilator spoke about the impact of pollution on respiratory diseases, use and increase in demand for ventilators due to severe pollution. Extracts:
How is the increase in post-Diwali pollution impacting the respiratory organs?
The increase in pollution after Diwali has made the air quality in Delhi “serious”. There is smog in the air and it will continue for about a month. It has triggered serious health problems for all age groups, especially children and the elderly. This causes irreparable and irreversible damage. People suffer from respiratory allergies, respiratory problems, asthma and bronchitis due to the increased level of pollution.
Why can poor respiratory care lead to increased ventilator use?
There are a whole host of conditions a person can face if their respiratory organs are not taken care of regularly: from respiratory allergies to asthma to infections leading to pneumonia and bronchitis to extremely severe conditions. such as lung cancer and COPD and acute respiratory failure, the list is quite long and many of them would require immediate care and mechanical ventilation.
We often tend to take most of our respiratory organs for granted as long as they are functioning on the outside without realizing that even the slightest problem with any of the organs, if not treated in time, could deteriorate. into a life-long debilitating disease requiring prolonged or even lifelong progress. level of medical care, including ventilatory support.
How can ventilators help with poor breathing conditions?
It helps us breathe when you are sick, injured, sedated for an operation, or have severe breathing problems. It pumps oxygen-rich air into your lungs. It also helps us breathe out carbon dioxide, a harmful waste gas that our bodies need to get rid of.
What types of ventilators are suitable for treating respiratory problems?

Max Ventilator recently launched a High Flow Oxygen Therapy Machine (HFOT) that not only offers nearly 100% chance of survival, but also results in lower operating costs than a traditional ventilator. A modern, state-of-the-art device, HFOT equipment promises to add strength and strength to the ongoing battle against a resurgent Covid-19 virus. Another is the WeanX ventilator which promises to be an all-weather ventilation solution for hospitals, healthcare facilities and patients.

Coma or loss of consciousness
· cerebral lesion – brain-damage
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
Guillain Barre syndrome
· Pulmonary infection
Premature lung development (in babies)
Damage to the upper spinal cord
· Ventilators were also used on some patients diagnosed with COVID-19 during the 2020 pandemic. This is only for the most severe cases.
Is there an increase in demand for fans due to the high pollution?
Yes, there is an increase in demand for ventilators. After facing the covid experience, hospitals prepare upstream for any unforeseen situation. So that in times of crisis, they are ready to deal with it without facing the shortage of medical devices for treatment. Due to poor air quality and severe pollution, there are risks of increased respiratory problems. Extreme cases may also require a ventilator.
