THE PROBLEM

Respiratory illness affects one third of the world population.

 

Healthy air sacks (alveoli) in the lungs allow oxygen to be transferred to the blood.

When the transfer is impaired and oxygen levels fall, ventilators keep patients breathing

Ventilators don't treat the disease, they give patients time to fight it.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is caused by smoking, air pollution, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. 50% of them, some 8.5 million patients in North America, hate their masks because they are invasive, claustrophobic, and require constant maintenance.

Asthma, pneumonia, long Covid, neuromuscular disease, and postoperative patients also benefit from ventilators

“As the transfer process is impaired and oxygen levels fall, ventilators keep patients breathing. While they don't treat the disease, they do give patients time to fight it.


Coronavirus patients need more time – an average of 10 days, according to the University of Washington study. Other reports say one to two weeks is usual. A typical ICU patient averages 3-7 days

Unfortunately, alternative positive pressure ventilators are:

  • ​Expensive

  • Dangerous

  • Invasive

  • High maintenance (requires  frequent cleaning and parts replacement)

  • Requiring of a mask that leaves disfiguring marks on the face

  • Claustrophobic

  • Socially isolating

  • Useful in surgery and extreme medical situations

But our Venti negative pressure ventilators are:

  • Inexpensive

  • Safe

  • Non-invasive

  • Low maintenance

  • Easy to use

  • Wearable

  • Medically approved

  • Promoting of patient mobility, social interaction and eating
