It’s working!

500 patients in northern Italian hospitals are receiving right now respirators, produced by hacked scuba gear that was shipped by Decathlon! This is incredibly cool. Big hugs to Isinnova and their team, Massimo Temporelli, Fablab Milano and all the people involved in this! Big time respect. This is the second successful project after replacing the missing pieces of existing ICU ventilators  last week. On the Isinnova website, anybody can connect and learn how to follow the same practice in their own country. This virus is incredibly fast moving, so we need to move faster.

    Che dire…. Grandi 💪🌈😍

    is it this adapter open source ? we may need it here in Romania as well…

  3. Roman ha detto:

    ICU physician here. Would it be possible to contact the team that put this together for details, so we can get a similar thing going here? If so, please, please contact me via e-mail provided! Thank You lots!

    how about linking the procedure so other can replicate ?

    look like ventilators is not really complicated and it’s just patent law that allow for gauging…

  5. claude ha detto:

    Doh! sorry, didn’t notice the actual link ! DIY respirator… nevermind

    That just looks like a respirator, not a ventilator.

    A “ventilator” has the tubes going doing in the lungs for force air in and out for a patient physically unable to breathe. A “respirator” simply controls what gasses are delivered to the breathing orifices of a patient who can still breathe on their own.

      thanks for the comment, i’m not a doctor, i’ll correct it

      YES … a true ‘ventialtor’ would have the patient intubated … but THIS is much more than a simple oxygen mask … it adapts the ‘sealed to the face’ snorkelling mask, into a ‘positive pressure ventilator mask’ … a ‘PAP’ ventilator mask.

      The positive pressure in the mask will help to keep the alveoli in the lungs open, when THIS is connected to a ventilator (while the patient is at a stage of still being able to breath for themselves)

      If the patient deteriorates to a point where THIS device is no longer able to maintain sufficient oxygenation, then of course, the next step would be full intubation (an endo-tracheal tube inserted into the trachea)

      Hope that clarifies things a bit?

    Do you use this as CPAP/NIV mask?

  10. Caroline Kobold ha detto:

    Bravo! Nice to hear good news today

  11. Nadica ha detto:

    Thanks everyone that is trying to make world better place….my question is how do you get oxygen supply?On your video I can’t see…it looks like it is directly into O2 supply?Thanks

  12. Iza ha detto:

    It is very good idea
    You will have not coinfection
    👏👏👏

  13. […] Making Do: Sharon also sent me this interesting story about solutions to the ventilator shortage — specifically adapting diving equipment. […]

  14. Jose ha detto:

    Thank you from New Jersey. Fuck this virus

  15. […] After the positive testing on the hacked respirators based on snorkeling gear,  a massive movement of Italian makers coordinated by Massimo Temporelli and Isinnova is moving and scaling the project. […]

    Amazin! keep the good work you are the hackers this world needs!

    Cari membri del team medico dell’ospedale di Chiari, Italia

    Prima di tutto, mi presento. Mi chiamo Alexandre Barbosa dos Santos e sono un ingegnere meccanico che lavora per un’azienda aerospaziale brasiliana.

    In questo momento, stiamo lavorando in nostra azzienda per adattare lo snorkeling subacqueo “Easy Breath” (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.decathlon.com.br_mascara-2Dde-2Dsnorkeling-2Deasybreath-2Dsubea_p&d=DwIFaQ&c=QcaRG8Le7lT8BdMiZcyT0yLhAZ5hf8Xn-Eqydx4tLOI&r=Fr7sU4_It9Z9S0YZMXATQ-9Od1VqqF6MshEy4yjbOcs&m=EP3pY0j66L1tsOt6SWAuKPK5wZRzjAPtEe7btgnxbJU&s=wDHad3x34C2pxfN7lX4q7nCZsTl8SU1MYdswiOVPbaU&e=) in maschere CPAP sub-intensive da utilizzare contro la pandemia vírus di Covid-19, come hanno realizzato in una collaborazione tra Isinnova (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.isinnova.it_easy-2Dcovid19-2Deng_&d=DwIFaQ&c=QcaRG8Le7lT8BdMiZcyT0yLhAZ5hf8Xn-Eqydx4tLOI&r=Fr7sU4_It9Z9S0YZMXATQ-9Od1VqqF6MshEy4yjbOcs&m=EP3pY0j66L1tsOt6SWAuKPK5wZRzjAPtEe7btgnxbJU&s=bx_4Czyzv9HRX6IQkk4Fntzm12epVMAXP2Tzqejmp5o&e=) e il personale del vostro ospedale.

    Stiamo già stampando parti 3D per assemblare il primo prototipo in questo fine settimana. Siamo inoltre in contatto con alcuni ospedali locali per iniziare i test all’inizio della prossima settimana, probabilmente il lunedì.

    La quantità di persone infette e morti di Corona Vírus sta crescendo più rapidamente nel nostro paese, come si può immaginare. Tutti sappiamo che il tempo è molto cruciale per mettere in atto tutte le attrezzature, le risorse, la formazione e tutto ciò di cui hai bisogno per affrontare questa malattia correttamente e salvare vite umane il più possibile.

    In tal modo, chiediamo cortesemente il vostro supporto per la seguente questione.

    Il team dell’ospedale brasiliano che testerà il prototipo avrebbe bisogno di alcune istruzioni sulla tua esperienza con la maschera, su come regolarlo alla faccia del paziente, come disinfettarlo e / o altri consigli e dettagli che, in base alla vostra esperienza, possono aiutarci.

    Questo supporto potrebbe essere realizzato forse attraverso una breve chiamata web tra alcuni dei tuoi ragazzi e uno dei nostri. Sappiamo che l’attuale situazione in Italia non consente di trascorrere molto tempo oltre l’attenzione dei pazienti, ma speriamo di poter trovare un modo per consentire questa breve conversazione che ci consenta di evitare errori che già conoscete.

    Buona fortuna e Dio benedisca tutti noi.

    How can we hack the mask for protection of our providers who are at risk?

    Anesthesia is at risk during intubation. Could we hook them up to an oxygen line during the process of intubation?

    Could we hook up nurses to an oxygen tank when they go into a room?

    • dgiluz ha detto:

      honestly I don’t know. I’d suggest to contact the guys at Isinnova, they tested such kind of application, however it’s a bit hard to work keeping that mask for many hours, it’s a different scenario than simply breathing
