Mexican Team Develops "Multi-Patient" Ventilator That Can Treat Six People At A Time

To address the global need for ventilators, a team of Mexican tech and medical experts has designed a mutli-patient ventilator that can accomodate up to six people at a time.

They will make the blueprints available for "universal use" in the fight against the virus.

A multidisciplinary team led by the directors of Mexico's Hermosillo Technological Center and the State University of Sonora have designed a multi-patient ventilator called MARA, Automatic Machine For Artificial Respiration, reports El Universal.

MARA, which was developed with the input of doctors and industrial equipment suppliers, and has been approved by experts in both the technological and medical fields, can accomodate up to six patients at a time and can be dialed to adjust oxygen flow, breathing rate, and virus, bacteria, and fungus filtering, among many other parameters.

According Pedro Mar Hernandez, director of the Hermosillo Tech Center, the prototype was developed to help address the global need for ventilators to fight the virus and it's design will be made available for "universal use."
