A prototype mechanical ventilator for COVID-19 (Webinar: Federico Formenti)
- 2 Mar 21
In this webinar, Dr. Federico Formenti provides an overview of the OxVent project where a scalable mechanical ventilator was created in order to support the NHS during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Formenti's talk from our 2021 ADInstruments Research Day summarizes the collaboration between engineers, physicians and experts in medical device regulations to design, verify and manufacture a scalable mechanical ventilator to support the NHS during the COVID-19 pandemic. This work is a collaboration between King’s College London and the University of Oxford.
The OxVent project has since won two industry awards, you can find more details on these below
