IISER Pune faculty members Dr. Umakant Rapol and Dr. Sunil Nair have developed a low-cost ventilator put together with readily available and easily source-able parts. The researchers are now looking to get in touch with manufacturers to produce this ventilator model.

In this video produced by the Science Media Centre at IISER Pune, they describe how this ventilator was put together and describe the various mandatory features of the ventilator. Along with Dr. Rapol and Dr. Nair, the team consisted of Technical Officer Nilesh Dumbre, IISER Pune alumni Sainath Motlakunta (now a PhD student at Institute for Quantum Computing, Waterloo, Canada) and Dr. Mohammad Noaman (now a Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark).
