Breath is designed to deliver oxygen to a patient's lungs when their life is in danger and a doctor, nurse or paramedic is not able to use a professional ventilator.
The device is designed aid patients who require invasive ventilation due to respiratory failure caused by SARS-CoV-2.
Breath is designed to meet the minimum clinical requirements for ventilators during the COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Mudita decided to base the construction of their ventilator on the AMBU bag (otherwise known as a bag valve mask), a popular resuscitation and ventilation kit that is used in almost every hospital and ambulance, to provide patients with additional oxygen when necessary.
Mudita constructed a mechanism that presses on the AMBU bag and helps to deliver oxygen to the lungs. The medical practitioner can set the parameters, such as the air capacity and pressing frequency. Pressure sensors that monitor the whole mechanism and can report a potential fault are also included.
