Responding in times of crisis: How the IfM helped develop a new ventilator sharing device
Volunteers from the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM), University of Cambridge, responded to a request from clinicians at Royal Papworth Hospital to develop a device that, if needed in an emergency, could be attached to a ventilator to enable two COVID-19 patients to receive tailored respiratory support.

The new device – which is still in testing and not yet approved for clinical use – illustrates that it is possible to split the air flow from one ventilator to mechanically support the breathing of two sedated patients with different lung capacity and changing breathing needs.

In this webinar, experts from the IfM will discuss how the solution evolved and developed through collaboration with experts from Royal Papworth Hospital and Cambridge Design Partnership, with generous support from a wide selection of respiratory equipment manufacturers across the UK and the world.
