Philips Debuts Smaller Emergency Ventilator Amid Manufacturing Expansion

April 16  

Via FierceBiotech

“Philips is rolling out a new emergency-use ventilator to help relieve some of the burden on intensive care units as well as to provide care both inside and outside of hospitals.”

“Built as a smaller alternative to the more durable, full-featured hospital ventilators currently in high demand, the Respironics E30 device can deliver high-flow oxygen both invasively and noninvasively and can include air filters to help minimize healthcare workers’ potential exposure to the coronavirus.”

“Designed for mass production, Philips said it plans to quickly scale up manufacturing, with a goal of producing 15,000 units per week by the end of the month. It’s described by the FDA as a portable device and capable of being used in converted spaces for large numbers of COVID-19 patients such as convention centers, university dorms or hotels.”
