DIY Ventilator using Arduino with Blood Oxygen Sensing For Covid Pandemic

Nevon Low cost ventilator


Human lungs use the reverse pressure generated by contraction motion of the diaphragm to suck in air for breathing. A contradictory motion is used by a ventilator to inflate the lungs by pumping type motion.
A ventilator mechanism must be able to deliver in the range of 10 – 30 breaths per minute, with the ability to adjust rising increments in sets of 2. Along with this the ventilator must have the ability to adjust the air volume pushed into lungs in each breath. The last but now the least is the setting to adjust the time duration for inhalation to exhalation ratio.
Apart from this the ventilator must be able to monitor the patients blood oxygen level and exhaled lung pressure to avoid over/under air pressure simultaneously.
The ventilator we here design and develop using arduino encompasses all these requirements to develop a reliable yet affordable DIY ventilator to help in times of pandemic.
We here use a silicon ventilator bag coupled driven by DC motors with 2 side push mechanism to push the ventilator bag. We use toggle switch for switching and a variable pot to adjust the breath length and the BPM value for the patient.
Our system makes use of blood oxygen sensor along with sensitive pressure sensor to monitor the necessary vitals of the patient and display on a mini screen. Also an emergency buzzer alert is fitted in the system to sound an alert as soon as any anomaly is detected.
The entire system is driven by arduino controller to achieve desired results and to assist patients in COVID pandemic and other emergency situations.
