Symptoms of respiratory failure include:
- Low blood pressure
- Shortness of breath
- Unusual rapid breathing

People suffering from respiratory failure need external help to increase the level of oxygen in their blood. In this treatment, a ventilator is used to pump air into the lungs and force out the fluid from the air sacs.
Medications that treat infections and prevent blood clots are given to the patient suffering from respiratory failure. Medications which sedate the patient can be used to decrease the pain.
For instant medical care, oxygen is delivered through a face mask.
One should contact the doctor if any prominent signs or symptoms of respiratory failure are observed.
