(On 7-th of May 2020 we have started a medical trial)
The Endurance lasers company presents an automated Ambu system for lung ventilation.
The device consists of the Ambu breathing mask made of PVC (Silicone) and an automated pumping system.
I was featured on Russia 1 TV today
I am presenting our robotized open-source the Ambu breathing system
This device is intended for people with shortness of breath in a critical health condition. It will bring oxygen to the body and remove carbon dioxide, providing the lungs ventilation hands-free.
We believe that this device can save millions of lives during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The basic concept is to make a simple, easy-to-operate open-source device for mechanical ventilation that anyone can build.
As a basic kit, you need to have a bag valve mask, known as Ambu bag, (pumped by hands).
The system is build using affordable tools and components.
The system is designed for the Ambu mask replacement.
A PVC mask can be used only 1 time however a silicone one can be used up to 12 times (after autoclaving).
Features that are under development now.
1. Air cleaner with coal filters.
2. Air warmer.
3. UV lamp for disinfection.
5. LCD display to select intensity (frequency) and swing depth.
The device will operate from a battery (autonomously) / 12VDC / 110 V / 220V
Who needs it?
Ambulances and paramedics.
That tool could be used and kept in every home and can be used at any time if necessary.
Tests and approval
We plan to make a lot of tests to check the device efficiency with Smolensk (Russia) top reanimators in 2-3 hospitals. (Results will be published)
