John Molander P&G: Ambu Bag Ventilator
John Molander, from Procter & Gamble Co., has developed a new Ambu bag ventilator to help combat Covid-19 and get help to communities in need. The Molander P&G ventilator is user-friendly and incorporates familiar tools for medical personnel. Venti-Now can produce this low-cost portable, Ambu bag ventilator quickly and efficiently to distribute worldwide. In an interview with WCPO, Cincinnati, Molander said, "My aspirational goal is that a year from now, we'll have over 10,000 of these units out and around the globe."
That's exciting news for communities that have only one or two ventilators available at any given time. Many facilities don't have enough ventilators to take care of the enormous need. The Molander P&G ventilator is the perfect solution. This Ambu bag ventilator is portable, weighing in at 14 pounds, making it an excellent choice for temporary emergency medical units. Venti-Now received its Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA and is set to produce.
The disposable ambu-bags that hospitals and EMT's use are familiar accessories that means there's virtually no learning curve to run this ventilator. Medical staff can set the Tidal Volume, inhale and exhale ratio, and respiration rate. The display reads the Peak Inspiratory Pressure (PIP) and Respiratory rate (BPM) and is very easy to read. The Molander P&G ventilator is compatible with HEPA filters and PEEP valves in the expiration breathing circuit, and the ambu-bag oxygen port can bring medical oxygen from either ICU wall delivery or oxygen tanks using their delivery controls.
