Respirators are electrically, electromagnetically or pneumatically driven ventilation devices.

They are suitable for the artificial respiration of calculus who can only breathe insufficiently or suspended.

In home use, immobilize are mostly used for sleep-related breathing disorders (e.g. sleep apnea). In this case, the respirator performs "assisted spontaneous breathing". The prerequisite is that the person can still horn the breathing rate and depth independently.

Respirators can be found in the GKV's list of medical aids under product group 14 "Inhalation and respiratory therapy devices".
