WVXU recently reported on Venti-Now, a Cincinnati-based nonprofit that developed a simple automated ventilator. Some of those ventilators will soon be on the way to Brazil, which has a high number of COVID-19 cases, as well as Tanzania.
Venti-Now was launched early in the pandemic by two P&G scientists, John Molander and Art Koehler, with the aim to create an affordable, easy-to-use ventilator for low-resource countries. The company enlisted input from various University of Cincinnati experts, including Peter Campbell, professor of biomedical engineering at UC, along with two of his students, whose work was featured here.
