International Ventilator Users Network's mission
is to enhance the lives and independence of users
of home mechanical ventilation (HMV) through
education, advocacy, research and networking.

IVUN has networked for 28 years, constantly discussing new ideas and concerns and re-fighting some battles.
We would like to hear from you –
ventilator users, families, attendants, health professionals (physicians, RTs).
From your point of view, what are the most important concerns of ventilator users?
In this short survey we ask you to prioritize a list and give room for adding further comments. Just click on the links below.

Note: When you create a “1,” the others will automatically rearrange. The same will happen when you create a “2,” etc.
