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.

Smelling your Emotional State Our sense of smell delivers important information to our brains, such as whether or not food is bad, or reminding us of a pleasant memory (crisp, fall air, anyone?). This fMRI-based study recorded PPG using a Photoplethysmograph Transducer for MRI connected to a PPG100C-MRI Amplifier. A differential pressure transducer continuously recorded variations in […]
