So back in 2012 in our country we wanted to try some kind of respiratory support for the youngest infants in which interfases for #NIV was difficult.
SO we came up with an idea: What if we dismantle the old ventilators we do not use any more?
Like this ones 👇
They were cheap (we weren´t using them anymore) and there was no information than commercial devices were better!
And as we were (and still are) living on the NON INVASIVE VENTILATION INVASION, we thought ventilators will be even more unneccesary in the years to come.
So we transformed the ventilators in #HFNC devices
Isn´t it cheap? Very suitable for LMICs !
Look at the transformation !
