Low tech version built with
- piece of plywood
- 1" dowel rod
- wiper motor
- wiper switch w/ intermittent delay
- Laptop power supply 12v 5a
- 3dprinted part (adapter for the motor to add adjustability)
From what I’ve been reading the ambu bag ventilators won’t help for ARDS. I am at the point with this version where I need to decide to keep going or to pivot and help with the other version.
Is the limited control with a two-speed motor and 8 - 10 intermittent settings is enough to be useful?
If so what situation is it useful for?
Could this be used to supply air to a machine that could monitor what is needed to be effective?
More info on the project
There are two versions of this being built simultaneously
This version is meant to be as low tech as possible.
The other version is meant to have much more control and be more efficient in every way.
