Project Details

Description

The CoRESCUE AAU Pandemic Ventilator is an open source emergency ventilator available for all. It is relatively easy to build, solid and can be produced using standard industrial parts.

We aim to provide the complete design, in the form of reference implementations and design specifications on Github: https://github.com/CoRescue

WHY
Emergency ventilators can prevent deaths due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thousands of COVID-19 patients require acute breathing support by a mechanical ventilator.

HOW
We prevent ventilator shortage. Researchers at Aalborg University and industrial partners have joined efforts and developed a simple, affordable and easy to use emergency ventilator.

WHAT
CoRESCUE deliver open source AAU Pandemic Ventilator reference implementation and design specifications. Use them to alleviate ventilator shortage during the COVID-19 pandemic.
