Respiratory illness is one of the major reasons for mortality around the world. One in six deaths is due to respiratory illness. Due to shortages of ventilators, low resource healthcare conditions, and high healthcare costs, patients do not get access to ventilators. During the ventilator shortage, manual ventilation for prolonged periods of time leads to mortality and morbidity. RespirAID is a safe, reliable, affordable alternative for prolonged manual ventilation. It is a mechanical ventilation that provides intermittent positive pressure ventilation for patients in ER emergency care, ambulances and post operative care. RespirAID reduces treatment cost and saves life.
