Circuit Splitter and Flow Restriction Devices for Multiple Patient Lung Ventilation

Prusa Printers

Let's be clear: if you print this and use this on a patient, that is your responsibility. I make no representations as to the safety of this device. It's an experimental model designed to stimulate conversation. The world is running out of equipment, we need to think about alternatives.

This post accompanies a submission (18 March 2020) to the journal Anaesthesia entitled "3D Printed Circuit Splitter and Flow Restriction Devices for Multiple Patient Lung Ventilation Using One Anaesthesia Workstation or Ventilator".

The COVID-19 condition/SARS-CoV-2 virus has resulted in widespread ventilator shortages.

This device enables multiple patients to be ventilated with the one anaesthesia machine or intensive care ventilator, similar to that described in Dr Charlene Irwin Babcock's recent video
