MIT and Harvard researchers developed a new technique to expand ventilator capacity
Individualized System for Augmenting Ventilator Efficacy (iSAVE): A Rapidly deployable system to expand ventilator capacity
“The iSAVE is a rapidly deployable solution in response to the urgent shortage of mechanical ventilators for respiratory support during the COVID-19 pandemic. In contrast to previously described ventilation splitters, the iSAVE could at least double the number of treated patients while retaining personalized ventilation settings for each individual. Using existing ventilator devices avoids manufacturing delays, and lowers the prohibitive costs of procuring expensive ventilators at large scale. Healthcare systems worldwide could benefit from this as they strive to care for the exponentially increasing volume of COVID-19 patients.”
While the iSAVE approach is not yet a standard of care, the approach may be considered where shortages of ventilators threaten lives.
Ready-to-ship BIOPAC components used in the open circuit ventilator assembly included pressure sensor TSD160D, airflow sensor SS11LB, Transducer Amplifiers DA100C, Gas Sampling Interface Kit AFT20, and Data Acquisition System MP160 Research System.

Add fNIRS Lessons to a C Series Imager Record NIRS measurements from the forehead and the forearm at two wavelengths, 730 nm for deoxy-Hb and 850 nm for oxy-Hb. Students embark on real-world NIRS research using a student-friendly approach in these four guided lessons covering nine experiments. COBI Modern makes NIRS experimentation easy for students […]
Researchers utilize electrodermal activity (EDA) data in a wide array of protocols. These recent studies join thousands of BIOPAC citations for EDA and represent just a few of BIOPAC’s hardware options for wired, wireless, logged, or MRI protocols with reusable or disposable EDA accessories and AcqKnowledge software solutions for Automated EDA Analysis Routines and EDA Measurement Tools.
