    Ventilators are medical devices that help patients breathe when they are unable to do so on their own. They deliver a controlled amount of oxygen to the lungs and help remove carbon dioxide from the body. Ventilators can be used in various medical settings, including intensive care units, emergency rooms, and during surgeries. They are vital in treating patients with respiratory conditions, such as pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and respiratory distress syndrome.

    Humidifiers are devices that add moisture to the air to prevent dryness, particularly in indoor spaces. They can help alleviate symptoms of dry skin, dry throat, congestion, and dry cough. Humidifiers are commonly used in homes and offices, especially during winter months or in dry climates, to maintain a comfortable level of humidity in the air.

    Benefits of Ventilators:

    1. Provide life-saving support for patients with respiratory failure.
    2. Ensure proper oxygen levels in the blood.
    3. Assist patients during anesthesia or sedation.
    4. Improve lung function and aid in recovery from respiratory illnesses.
