Respirator Apparatus

Respirator Apparatus

A critical medical equipment needed to reduce mortality rate in the case of COVID is the Ventilator. Ventilators are expensive, and in short supply the world over. In this situation, the quickest solution, and the most widely used solution is to automate BVMs (Bag-Valve-Mask). The RespiratorApparatus does this using a simple mechanism using wiper motors used in cars. Unlike manual pumping of BVMs by paramedical staff, electronic circuits and software in the RespiratorApparatus allow a good amount of control. So doctors can set an approximate Tidal Volume, Breaths per Minute and IE Ratio that is right for the patient.
