The ventilator consists of various components – valve systems, sensors, an electronic control unit, etc. – that must work together in a special way in order for the emergency ventilator to be fully functional. For example, that the air entering the patient’s lungs must do so with a certain pressure. We have developed programming of the electronics to control the machine for all to use. Before using the AAU Pandemic Ventilator please see the terms and conditions for doing so here and follow your national guidelines for approval of emergency medical devices.
