Critically ill and postoperative patients require vigilance in maintaining appropriate ventilation, a task of heightened importance during transport, when monitoring capabilities are inherently limited. Current, commercially available transport ventilators are exorbitantly expensive and/or limited in functionality. Hence, options for transport ventilation include prohibitively expensive multimodal ventilators, functionally limited ventilators, or suboptimal manual (hand) ventilation.
