COVID19 Inventor Showcase Features Team Working on Increasing Ventilator Capacity

The CCTS’s Optimizing Innovation, Commercialization and Entrepreneurship of Biomedical Research program is launching a monthly panel series to highlight experts who are working together to fight against COVID-19 on our front lines of innovation.

SARS-CoV-2 can cause severe lung damage leading to respiratory failure. Estimates so far show that about 6% of patients affected with COVID-19 get critically sick, and about a quarter of those may need respiratory assistance with a ventilator. Mechanical ventilation can be a life-saving intervention resulting in improved patient outcomes, however, the current surge in demand has led to a worldwide shortage. Join us via webinar on June 23 at 9 a.m. to learn how experts at Ohio State joined forces to develop a safe, effective and low-cost way of doubling ventilator capacity.
