One of the most pressing shortages facing hospitals in USA, Europe, Iran and India during the Covid-19 emergency is a lack of ventilators. These machines can keep patients breathing when they no longer can on their own, and they can cost around US$30,000 each. The demand of the ventilator exceeds supply hence there is an urgency to develop an emergency ventilator which is design for ease of manufacturing and operation, low cost of manufacturing and comply with minimum FDA Ventilator Standards. The ventilator consists of the following elements: 1. Control and electrical modules. 2. Ambu-bag 3. Mechanical system 4. Centre Monitoring System Each emergency ventilator will be fitted with Wi-Fi and remote camera which could make networking of bunch ventilators and sending data to a central monitoring station. This remote monitoring will reduce the medical staff workload. The device may be incorporated with GSM for application in mobile platform such as in ambulance. The device can also be kept as emergency ventilator in clinics, ambulances and nursing homes.
