TU In The Coronavirus Fight

Faculty and staff at Trine University have found a way to modify a manual resuscitator as an emergency backup ventilator, if needed. The group has been working with Parkview Health to find alternatives to medical items that are in limited supply, like ventilators. The team will test the machine on an artificial lung to make sure it will work as required to be a valid replacement for a ventilator. If everything performs as planned, Parkview will contact the Food and Drug Administration to see if the product can be fast-tracked to production, as the coronavirus battle continues.
