Home Care for Ventilator Patients

Pediatric Home Care Nurse helps child breatheHome care nurses are often faced with providing specialty care to adult and pediatric patients with medically complex needs. The most complicated of these patients require the use of a ventilator in order to maintain adequate breathing to sustain their life. Patients with this level of need require a competent nurse with current knowledge of and experience with the latest medical technology and the ability to work with patients and their families who are experiencing the challenges associated with life with a ventilator.

Surprisingly, many of the ventilator dependent patients cared for at home are children. Children on ventilators present additional challenges related to creating an environment that nurtures normal growth and development and socialization. It is not unusual for a home care nurse to accompany a child using a ventilator to school and other activities. It is the purpose of the nurse to assist the child in having as normal a life as possible.
