Low Cost Portable Ventilator designed and built by IIT students
IIT Rourkee students have made a low-cost Ventilator for patients suffering from the COVID-19 Virus.
The closed-loop ventilator does not require compressed air and is useful when hospital wards and open areas are converted into ICUs, a press release from the premier institute said.
It is low-cost, safe, reliable, and can be quickly manufactured. We have successfully achieved the ventilatory requirement on a test lung, and it can be used for both infants and even overweight adults
