We are working with certified animal testing labs to conduct studies in animal models under IACUC (Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee) approved protocols. A porcine model was chosen as pigs have a respiratory systems that is most similar to human beings. This is essential in order to evaluate system performance and safety. We would like to anonymously acknowledge the laboratory staff for their tireless efforts, and the donors who are enabling this rapid scale-up of animal testing.
We conducted testing and experimentation on the benchtop in order to validate system operation under load, investigate calibration of the arm position to volume delivered and understand the actual volume delivered as a function of physiological and breathing circuit parameters.
Modelling & Waveform Analysis
This work is a model-based and experimental analysis of the flow profiles of the MIT Emergency Ventilator for different patient conditions, incorporating ISO standards.
