In brief: Without tube

We can help patients breath using a ventilator. Usually we place a tube in the trachea and attach the ventilator. We also can use a special mask ( CPAP or bipap) without a tube to attach to a ventilator. Generally we use this method in patients who are more stable or refuse invasive procedures.
