We inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. When a patient cannot do this sufficiently for him/herself, a ventilator will get oxygen into the lungs and remove carbon dioxide. One common use of a ventilator is during surgery, when a patient is under general anesthesia. In the past ventilators were also known as respirators, but that is no longer common. Today a respirator typically refers to a protective face mask.
