you should be asking a Rav that is familiar with the disease process of ALS and ventilator care. My family went through this exact process and unless the Rav knows what ventilator care and ALS disease he can Posken appropriately.

You can find rabbanim who will pasken that you don't have to be vented. Like Sarastern said, you have to talk to a very knowledgeable rav.
