According to many media reports, NASA's, named Vital ventilator device was approved by the I Chen School of Medicine in New York on April 21.

Engineers from the US space agency NASA designed a mass-produce-able ventilator for COVID 19 patients in just 37 days.

The parts needed to make it are much less expensive than conventional ventilators that are also out of stock and many countries are seeking help from private sectors that are also out of stock.

Following NASA's victory, engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California developed the ventilator, which aims to help treat critically ill patients with Coronavirus by helping hospitals and doctors who have a shortage of ventilators.


Note: There is a shortage of ventilator supply in the whole world.
"We specialize in spacecraft, not medical-device manufacturing," said JPL Director Michael Watkins. 
"But excellent engineering, rigorous testing and rapid prototyping are some of our specialties. When people at JPL realized they might have what it takes to support the medical community and the broader community, they felt it was their duty to share their ingenuity, expertise and drive."
These ventilators are designed for COVID19 patients and have a lifespan of 3 to 4 months.

For those who need dynamic ventilators, a device developed by NASA will be able to help reduce the severity of the disease in patients and that will be a really great help.

These ventilators are quick to prepare and can be easily repaired and do not require spare parts at all. This kind of ventilator can also be used in any location such as field hospitals, hotels, and convention centers to treat coronavirus patients.
