That's great. Could potentially save a lot of lives if they can roll them out on time.

Dyson is already building 10,000 ventilators for the UK. Their techs had a meeting with some doctors and now they are in production. They can attach to the sides of portable beds in field hospital type halls. Thanks James Dyson. When can I buy one at Harvey Norman? Of course the Dyson version will probably cost $800.

By way of a desert island/no medical help available DIY discussion is concerned.... I had also had an idea of something along the same lines using a hand bag resus/ambu-bag as it already has the check valves and openings for tubes,etc driven by electro-mechanical means. You probably need a capability to deliver 10-20 breaths per minute in the 500-800cc range. It would need to be pressure limited for safety, probably in the same pressure range as a CPAP machine (4 to 20 cmH2O). Of course a proper ventilator is MUCH more sophisticated with various constant pressure, const volume and other specialty modes

Of course outside a hospital, you could probably only use a face mask (full face pref), as intubation would be risky in the field and ill advised.

Stay safe

Best

We've always manufactured here in Australia and I forwarded the MIT
links to our third party turn-key manufacturer here in Sydney.

I received this response from them this morning :-

Thanks for the info, I've actually been in contact with the Therapeutic Goods Administration offering our services for electronics manufacture of ventilators. We have been in touch with firms that do medical equipment and are tasking themselves with these units, so hopefully we can help them out if they have capacity issues, which I'm sure they will.
