BLU3 Vent by BLU3
“This process has been driven at lightspeed by an amazing collaborative effort put on by the DOD, all with the common goal to make a difference in saving lives. Our BLU3 team could not be more proud of the challenges we’ve overcome, and we are eager to keep pushing forward in case BLU3 Vent can make a positive impact anywhere around the world.” – Blake Carmichael, President & CEO
More than a standard air pump, Nemo has benefits in sensor and software technology that the BLU3 team realized could enable rapid ventilator development. Within weeks, the BLU3 team was able to produce a functional prototype. New test results suggest that BLU3 Vent could be used as an emergency use ventilator to help patients affected by COVID-19. BLU3 Vent is now awaiting review by the FDA for approval under the Emergency Use Authorization.
- Easy to use: Intuitive controls and precise adjustments of PIP, PEEP, RR, and I:E Ratio, all reported to the user
interface with Tv, RMV, and a respiratory circuit pressure graph. Simple instructions are easy to digest for healthcare professionals to quickly adapt.
- Calibrated Reliability: Water-based pressure control valves never lose calibration. BLU3 Vent’s design ensures reliable PIP and PEEP fail safe mechanisms, regardless of the amount of storage time prior to use.
- Assist Mode: Healthcare professionals may select Pressure Assist-Controlled mode for patients as they return to normal breathing habits. User interface displays a count of spontaneous inhalations detected.
- Real-Time Oxygen Table: Oxygen supply requirement to meet FiO2 goal is calculated and displayed on interface. Provides capability to operate effectively during times that medical oxygen sensors are not available.
