A Portable Emergency Ventilator (PEV) is a device that can provide positive pressure ventilation to a person who is incapable of breathing on their own. This device can eliminate the need for mouth-to-mouth resuscitation used by first responders during CPR, thus drastically eliminating the spread of diseases. The device can also be used when transporting patients or in home use when a large ventilator is too expensive and impractical.
This project focuses on improving a PEV developed in the late 1980s by Jeff Gutterman and Roman Press and the latest model as develvoped by MSD Group 13026. The goal of this project is to update the models using modern day technologies. This will focus on making it smaller, lighter, and more usable, while providing effective functionality and provide familiar feedback to the user. The expected end result is a functional prototype which can be marketed to companies and be manufactured by 2015.
