Open Source Ventilator and Face Shield Projects

Open Source Ventilator and Face Shield Projects

In fight against Covid-19, there are currently many issues to be solved in the frontline (i.e. hospitals). Avaliable space is everywhere very limited. And so is the healthcare personals and their most needed logistics and proper tools/ equipment to protect themselves from infection.

In the following we list some open source projects for emergency ventilator and face shield (or generally PPE - Personal Protective Equipment), which can be built locally in a DIY-style or perhaps (somehow) organized by a local task force nearby the frontlines. At the end of the list I’ve added some repositories related to (low cost) development of PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) devices.

Ventilator Projects

nvarcha/spe-respirator Automatic Bag Valve Ventilator - An open-source pandemic respirator project
OpenVentilator/OpenVentilator BVM based open ventilator design. The open ventilator project was created in response to the demand for respirator created by the COVID-19 epidemic. The aim of the project is to create respiratory support device that can be quickly and easily produced with locally sourced material. The device is not a replacement for for respirators but in the event of a shortage of ventilators, these devices can provide support to patients that would otherwise not have any.
