WELCOME
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Greetings from www.VentWorld.com.  As we promised the thousands who
have visited our web site, we are sending this first edition of our
VentWord Newsletter to all of our registered viewers. This newsletter
is published periodically to provide timely news and information of
interest to all members of the mechanical ventilator community.  These
individuals include respiratory clinicians, patients, educators,
researchers, manufacturers, distributors, after-market suppliers and
others concerned with the development and use of mechanical ventilators.

VentWorld.com is the premier manufacturer-neutral website for
everything you need to know about ventilators and mechanical
ventilation.  It presents information and graphical displays for the
objective comparison of the major international makes and models of
ventilators and accessories.  It also provides community news and a
forum for discussions of ventilator topics, and it lists extensive
educational, clinical and research resources related to mechanical
ventilation.

We hope you will enjoy this Newsletter and find it informative and
useful.  If so, please distribute it to any of your colleagues who
may find it of interest.  We solicit your suggestions and
recommendations (feedback@VentWorld.com)!

NEW SECTION: ON THE GRAPEVINE
Have you ever wondered whether your peers share the same concerns
that you have about ventilators? One way to find out is to
participate in the discussion groups on the web.  But you may not
have time to review all possible list servers that might include
subjects of interest to you.  Consequently, VentWorld.com will
begin monitoring a wide spectrum of list servers to keep our
viewers abreast of ventilator-related threads on other sites.
You still may not have time to track all the discussions, but at
least now you'll know what you're missing!


OPEN SITE ACCESS
In the near future, visitor registration with a password and ID
no longer will be needed to enter VentWorld.com.  Access to all
VentWorld areas will be open to anyone who types our address into
his or her browser.  However, those who want the VentWord
newsletter e-mailed to them will have to register for it, if they
have not already done so.
