ULTIMATE MEDICAL HACKATHON: HOW FAST CAN WE DESIGN AND DEPLOY AN OPEN SOURCE VENTILATOR?#14

?

(As https://hackaday.com/2020/03/12/ultimate-medical-hackathon-how-fast-can-we-design-and-deploy-an-open-source-ventilator propose)
We need a Nasal cannula-based NIV (like https://hackaday.com/2015/09/25/hackaday-prize-semifinalist-individualized-breathing-apparatus) that humidifies air, mixes it with oxygen and then pushes a constant stream of it into people’s lungs.

In the high flow nasal cannula, the air is warmed and humidified to not dry out mucus membranes. Frequently sold under the brand name Optiflow and should be easy to construct, just bubble the gas through 37-40°C water.

would like to share with you a DIY and FULLY OPEN-SOURCE Face Shield design, so anyone can produce it and/or modify it to match their need.
This lean shield design is inspired by Prusa, but designed to be quick to print and use the least amount of material possible. (Print time: ~20 minutes & Filament: ~11g).
Source files can be downloaded from here: https://bit.ly/3dygiLH

Anyone with a 3D printer can help and everyone can do something!
Please help by SHARING this status and spreading the word in an effort to produce protective gear for those, who need it the most.
