SmithVent is a team of Smith College engineering alumni and friends. We are collaborating virtually on a simplified, cost-effective, rapidly-manufacturable pneumatic ventilator tailored to COVID-19 patient needs and designed for ease of use by healthcare workers. The SmithVent design will allow gentle air delivery to the patient, proning if necessary, and liberation from mechanical ventilation with its pressure support mode. Our manufacturing strategy utilizes mainly readily-available off-the-shelf components, thereby reducing complex machining and supporting compatibility with current medical equipment. The enclosure design is user-friendly and easy to clean. The sophisticated control system ensures flexible inputs, patient data monitoring, and various levels of alarms. Our documentation file contains extensive information about the SmithVent design, including a bill of materials, manufacturing approach, and requirements compliance discussion.
