Rapidly Deployable Breast Pump Ventilator to Combat Coronavirus

The George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science


A simple, bare bones ventilator using parts that are readily available at a total cost of ~$300. The heart of the system is a widely used breast pump with the airflow reversed. We believe that there are thousands of these in dresser drawers and closets across the country that are not being used which can be used to complement new machines currently in the supply chain.
