Currently there are a number of companies that produce highly sophisticated ventilators, however the units cannot be manufactured in high enough quantities to meet the demand forecasted for COVID-19 response.
Nectar Product Development has designed a ventilator based on proven technologies that can serve 90% of critical care needs. The ventilator has a limited feature set, is quick to assemble, and has a small number of readily available parts, resulting in a dramatically lower cost per unit than ventilators currently on the market.
As it stands, the first ventilator will come off of the production line on April 19, 2020. In partnership with a contract manufacturer, it will be possible to produce 40,000 ventilators per month by mid-June 2020. These quantities can be scaled up even further by adding additional manufacturing partners.
