Community Assessment & Support

Most people who need long term ventilation enter the health care system through the community. The risk or need for long term ventilation can be identified by your family doctor, a Respirologist, or at the Chronic Ventilation Clinic.

Stable long term ventilation can be safely managed by patients, families, and caregivers through education and the ongoing support of your health care team. People who need long term ventilation report a better quality of life when they are able to access treatment and support at home or in the community.

A carefully made Plan of Care can help people avoid going to the hospital unless absolutely necessary.
