Example text

8 The 1950s and the Start of Intensive Care Units The requirement for mass ventilation in Copenhagen during the 1952 polio epidemic overwhelmed the supply of cabinet ventilators available. The anaesthetist Bjorn Ibsen had the idea of using anaesthetic circuits containing a Boyles bag to provide intermittent positive pressure ventilation. The bag was kept inflated by a positive pressure of gas within the circuit and could be squeezed by hand to provide inflation (Fig. 10). Later the bag would be modified to become self – reforming so that it could be used independently of an anaesthetic machine.

In emergency, the nasal cavity provides a valuable route to ensure the airway by nasal intubation (Fig. 4). However, insertion of a nasal airway or endotracheal tube may be difficult due a deviation of the nasal septum and enlarged turbinates. 2. The nose has a rich blood supply and haemorrhage is possible from all points following trauma or intubation attempts. 2 The Mouth (Oral Cavity) The oral cavity starts at the lips and leads back to the pharynx, which starts at the tonsils and the palatoglossal folds.

Because the normal negative pressure seal in the chest had been broken there was therefore a need to provide internal lung pressure to keep the lungs open and to ensure adequate ventilation 2. in Germany in 1907 the Dräger company produced the first mechanical ventilator, the Dräger Pulmoflator (Fig. 7). This interesting device, discussed in more detail below incorporated many of the principles that were to be used in pneumatic ventilation 60 years later. It was designed to be used to provide artificial ventilation in mines (Dräger was a company specialising in mining industry support) but inexplicably the medical profession largely ignored it Fig.
