With most ventilators in the ballpark of $20k-$30k (hey, that’s Ford F150 money!), it’s no surprise that America is experiencing a ventilator shortage during the COVID-19 pandemic. But not to worry! Experts you can trust at MIT have constructed this extremely affordable ventilator out of already available parts.
The coolest part is the Ambu bag, which first responders often use on the scene of accidents in lieu of a real-life ventilator. Just be repurposing this, they crafted this machine that’ll help them save possibly thousands of lives. The researchers aren’t asking any money for their lifesaving invention, just that they stay anonymous. Wow!
