Genomes and Genes
Summary: Any method of artifical breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2 ) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2 ).
