For Creating the emergency ventilator
Note: Can have a local machine shop CNC the device, do a high volume 3D injected molding, or can also do high-end 3d print if needed
For Face Mask or Intubation Tubes
Note: Need tight seal around face for air exchange to work, or intubation tubing
For clean compressed air
Note: Need a dry air compressor, with a pressure regulator (or you need to add one), and ideally a filter
For Adjusting the Right Pressure
Notes: Use the regulator on the air compressor, or an independent pressure gauge if there is not one on the air compressor, plus use the 3 knobs on the emergency ventilator to adjust the proper air pressure to match desired pressure profiles that would be needed for eventual use in patients.
For Sanitizing Air on Exhaust Tubing
Notes so far: A large HEPA filter that doesn't impede pressure, UV light surrounding the tubing, or a high heat source could sterilize the air on exhale
For Oxygen and Humidification
Notes: Supplemental medical oxygen and humidification can be added in a variety of ways to the inlet air.
We will be sharing everything we have so that we can more effectively collaborate with those helping out.
For now, we've posted the prior research and testing we based our product inspiration from. We'll be adding the mechanical designs shortly under a non commercial creative commons license for anyone to print and help us do testing and validation
