Alarms provide both auditory and visual signals.
CoroVent weighs 20 kg.
The device is operated with a touch screen and two rotary knobs.
CoroVent is designed to meet the requirements for so-called protective ventilation.
Ventilátory CoroVent prošly všemi potřebnými testy v Elektrotechnickém zkušebním ústavu a pro jejich použití v českých nemocnicích tak zbývá již jen získání výjimky z Ministerstva zdravotnictví resp. SÚKL.Non-biding inquiry
The CoroVent project aims to design and build ventilators for use in the absence of ventilation technology during COVID-19 pandemic.
It adheres to all protective ventilation principles and is safe for patients both in terms of ventilation and in other respects, including electrical safety and the biocompatibility of the materials used. Another aim is easy and quick manufacturability using commercially available parts so that manufacturing is not jeopardized by issues in the supply of special parts. Considering the course of the disease with respiratory failure caused by SARS-CoV-2, the device has been engineered with a single ventilation regimen suitable for patients with ARDS. Other objectives include intuitive and simple operation and the use of consumables commonly available in anaesthesiology, resuscitation, and intensive care units.
Patients with this respiratory disease require deep sedation during artificial lung ventilation. Given these basic pathophysiological aspects, CoroVent features a volume-controlled pressure-limited ventilation regimen with emphasis on configuring ventilation parameters to best meet the recommendations for so-called protective ventilation.
The ventilator has a single ventilation regimen: volume-controlled pressure-limited ventilation. The ventilator works as a constant pressure source in inspiration,while expiration is controlled by a pneumatic valve that maintains the required PEEP and serves as a safety valve to prevent excessive Plim pressure in the patient circuit. The ventilator has two user interfaces on the front panel: an intuitive touch screen and rotary control knobs.
The device allows mandatory ventilation only without the possibility of triggering the patient’s breathing effort.
CoroVent is housed in a durable stainless-steel case ideal for the emergency room setting.
Patient safety is a top priority in the design and construction of CoroVent.
The ventilator is designed to allow observation of protective ventilation principles and is thus equipped with the following features:
The device has been engineered so that even in a single fault or undesirable condition caused by its operation (e.g. complete occlusion of the expiratory limbs of the patient circuit) it will not damage the patient’s respiratory system.
Some of the components are disposable to prevent transmission of the highly contagious infection.
In addition to the common consumables used for patients on invasive artificial lung ventilation, use of CoroVent requires the following items:
The spirometer sensor and expiratory valve were specially designed by the CoroVent team, and MICo Medical ensures manufacture in sufficient quantities.
We’ll also be launching an online store for CoroVent consumables very soon.Order consumables
