About the Project

Description

An affordable at-home pro-active biphasic cuirass ventilation device gives patients a chance to recover from the worst symptoms of Covid-19 infection when these patients are otherwise triaged away from hospital care and Positive Pressure Ventilators.

How far along is it

Initial prototype housing has been built and preliminary negative pressure test successful.

Help Needed

Tasks that need to get done

(1) Need medical mentor familiar with negative pressure ventilation device options for reality check toward the implementation of our assumptions. Read "Questions" at bottom of https://github.com/stevebull/negative-pressure-ventilator/blob/master/Project-Description. (2) Need experienced coders to add certain sensors to prototype that in one case give Arduino a control negative pressure vacuum.
