An affordable 'stopgap' ventilator which can be used with minimal training could help keep seriously ill people alive long enough to either recover or receive hospital care, scientists say. The device, called GlasVent, was developed by the University of Glasgow's Professor Ravinder Dahiya and a team of engineers from his Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST) group.

The designs of a new breathing aid developed by engineers at UCL and Formula One working with clinicians at UCLH have been made freely available to support the global response to Covid-19. The UCL-Ventura breathing aid, a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device, helps Covid-19 patients with lung infections to breathe more easily, when an oxygen mask alone is insufficient.
