MIT Emergency Ventilator (E-Vent) Project

MIT has launched an emergency research project with a team of MIT Engineers and American clinicians to address the question: Is it possible to safely ventilate a COVID-19 patient by automatically actuating a manual resuscitator?

The goal of this site is to provide the best information they can, focused around safety, on automating a manual resuscitator, as a potential means for longer-term ventilation.
