Let’s break barriers to fight Covid-19 together

Ventilator build by NASA

According to NASA, the high-pressure ventilator, named VITAL (Ventilator Intervention Technology Accessible Locally), is composed of fewer parts than traditional ventilators. And since most of the parts used in the device are currently available through existing supply chains, VITAL can be manufactured more rapidly and maintained more easily than other solutions. Moreover, its design allows it to be modified for use in field hospitals and other non-traditional settings. However, VITAL is intended to only last three to four months and was specifically designed for COVID-19 patients.
