The practice includes the administration of gas mixtures by various appliances, application of mechanical ventilators to assist or control breathing, maintenance of airways, administration of drugs by inhalation, assistance with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, monitoring of heart and lung functions of critically ill patients, and evaluation of patients in the cardiopulmonary laboratories.
