Produced | AI technology base camp (ID: rgznai100)

Contagion in the world, the ventilator plays a key role in rehabilitation therapy. Without the support of a ventilator, some patients with severe pneumonia new crown may not survive.

Now, despite the global production ventilator in overtime, but the breathing machine production is still in short supply. Breathing machine in an emergency, to the global fight against SARS has brought great challenges.

Recently, the medical technology giant Medtronic (Medtronic) on their sites to the global intellectual property rights owned Ventilator Puritan Bennett ™ 560: including schematic design, production specifications, manuals, software code, etc., to allow innovators, inventors, start-ups businesses and academic institutions to use the expertise and resources to rapid manufacturing ventilator to help the global fight against new regional crown pneumonia.
