VITAL (Ventilator Intervention Technology Accessible Locally) ventilator has passed a critical test at the Icahn School of Medicine in New York.

VITAL has been designed to treat COVID-19 patients with milder symptoms. It will keep the country’s limited supply of traditional ventilators available for patients with more severe COVID-19 symptoms.

After FDA approval, the ventilator can be used to treat COVID-19 patients.

VITAL can be built faster and easily. It can be maintained more easily than a traditional ventilator.

The ventilator is composed of far fewer parts, many of which are currently available to potential manufacturers through existing supply chains.
