Ventilator Consent Form

A ventilator consent form is used when an individual is being placed on a ventilator for medical reasons. The form documents the individual's consent to the use of the ventilator and the individual's understanding of the risks and benefits associated with the use of the ventilator.

Eligibility

The Ventilator Consent Form must be filled in by a person who has the legal authority to do so. Usually, this will be the patient or a next of kin. If the patient has been declared incompetent by a court, the consent form must be filled by a legal guardian. If the patient is a minor, the consent form must be filled by a parent or legal guardian. If the patient is an adult and has designated a health care surrogate, the health care surrogate will give consent.
