In comparisons of industrialized and developing countries, the lack of financial resources partially accounts for the differential mortality rates. Developing countries with low bargaining power and weak health systems will be further challenged by having to compete with rich ones for supplies of masks, ventilators and other vital equipment. We believe EVERY LIFE is worth saving.

Making affordable and accessible ventilators

Medical care is never cheap, and it’s an especially big burden in developing countries. Many developing nations still rely on heavily subsidized health services. Governments need to make choices in making purchases, choosing between equipment with the highest technology and what can benefit their people more. Ethovent aims to fulfil the basic need of emergency automated at a more affordable price. Countries with geographic and economic challenges will be in a better position to purchase, deploy and equip the medical centres, alongside with trained personnel to rural and remote areas to save lives.

Fast Turnaround and still Affordable

In response to the urgent need, we ensure a faster turnaround time and expediated adoption of technologies and methods that will assist humanity to get through these challenging times. The Ethovent team is working with pre-existing technologies available at open source platforms which have already been proven and tested. This approach facilitates an advanced model that integrates into the current healthcare facilities, systems and components as efficiently as possible. This creates a product that is efficient and adaptable so that more patients can be treated faster and in different situations. We are able to produce fully functioning units hours after receiving confirmed orders.

Improving Healthcare systems

With the healthcare industry continually looking to cut costs and waste and improve efficiency and throughput, automation of manual tasks can be an important part of a strategy for performance improvement. A nurse supported by automation tools can handle a larger population of patients at one time. Instead of constantly increasing and reducing your headcount as patient volumes grow and shrink, an automated platform can scale flexibly to address groups of all sizes. Where every life matter, Automation can help us do more without depending wholly on the availability of human resources.

Taking care of our Front-liners

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.

Supply side

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.
