Simple, Low-Cost Ventilator Builds on Available Resources

A simple, low-cost ventilator based on the resuscitation bags carried in ambulances — and widely available in hospitals — has been designed by a team of researchers from Georgia Tech, Cranfield University, and Emory University. The device, which is powered by a 12-volt motor, could help meet peak medical demands in the industrialized world and serve resource-constrained countries that don’t have supplies of conventional ventilators.
