A3B Vent Design
Prototype for FDA Submission
The A3B Vent. is not meant to replace conventional ventilators, but provides ventilator functionality in emergencies when no other options are available. The equipment allows hospitals to expand their capacity to care for patients needing invasive mechanical ventilation and reallocate conventional ventilators for patients with more sophisticated needs. It is being developed following MIT E-Vent design with the intent to be included in Apendix B and receive FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) during the COVID-19 public health emergency. This unit is not FDA cleared or approved yet.
OVERALL DESIGN APPROACH
The main design goal was to choose components known and available in Puerto Rico and the USA to expedite the prototype's manufacturing, testing, validation, and eventual FDA approval.
The mechanical design intends to safely ventilate a COVID-19 patient by automatically actuating a manual resuscitator. The A3B is compatible with existing manual resuscitators.
