Together we will save lives

"Venti-Now is a nonprofit corporation that has developed a lightweight, portable, and inexpensive ventilator for use on patients who need assistance in breathing. With a generous seed grant from Procter & Gamble, and the help of University of Cincinnati engineering interns, we built a prototype that was given Emergency Use Authorization from the U. S. Food and Drug Administration in April 2020. 
By the end of 2020, we had built and tested 55 Venti-Now ventilators.  Together, we are continuing to distribute these emergency ventilators to hospitals in Africa. The ventilators are easily operated and the success has been spectacular; with dozens of lives saved.”
