COVID-19: DRDO develops mechanism where one ventilator can support multiple patients

Defence Research and Development Organisation Chairman G. Satheesh Reddy on March 30 informed that the organisation has developed a mechanism with which one ventilator can be used by multiple patients. "In case, there is a large number of patients and a shortage of ventilators, then we can use one ventilator for multiple patients," said Reddy. Reddy asserted that the ventilator has been tested in a couple of hospitals and a couple of doctors, and it is working fine. "That ventilator has been tested in a couple of hospitals and a couple of doctors, and it is working. Medical experts have given more suggestions to us. Probably in the next couple of days, we'll be ready with the final product with new features added to it," He added.
