From Kane County Chronicle, May 6, 2020: A team of physicists and scientists from all over the world, including Fermilab researchers, have come together to design and create a simplified ventilator that recently receive approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
From Chicago Tribune, May 5, 2020: In the middle of a global health emergency, scientists at Fermilab found they had a lot to offer the effort to meet demand for ventilators to treat COVID-19 patients. Fermilab scientist Stephen Brice helps explain how the group, working with colleagues outside the U.S., designed a portable, low-cost ventilator that still is capable of the most precise functions that bulkier, costlier machines provide.
From MVM collaboration, May 5, 2020: The Mechanical Ventilator Milano is an innovative ventilator, conceived and designed by an international collaboration of particle physicists and developed in cooperation with other relevant scientific communities. Its mechanical design is simple, using a small number of parts to facilitate rapid production. Fermilab scientists volunteered their time to design, test and finalize the MVM.
