Many countries already face chronic shortages of health workers. But 89% of the global nurse shortage is concentrated in low and lower-middle-income countries. Ventilators are indispensable in the treating patients with coronavirus infections stage 3 to 5 and other respiratory complications. The rapid rate of infections, and the number of patients in serious conditions, has surpassed the number of available ventilators. The shortage of ventilators, leaves overworked health workers being the ones to operate manual ventilators for long periods.
Automating ventilators appears to be the simplest strategy that satisfies the need for low-cost mechanical ventilation. Moreover this would free up health workers to discharge other duties to more patients.
On the supply side there are four factors, the labour force, capital, technology and regulation. Ethovent disrupts the supply-side of ventilators by challenging the status quo with more options of products and customizable features , cheaper costs and transfer of knowledge ensures that more countries are able to equip more medical centres with the technology needed to save lives or even improve the quality of lives of the sick.
