PublicNews18: Successful Three De Ventilators Prepare in Pakistan The outbreak of the Corona virus started in Wuhan, China, when it visited other countries around the world. Some do not have the time or resources to meet this shortfall.
Successful Three De Ventilators Prepare in Pakistan Therefore, many engineers and doctors around the world have joined hands to think how to overcome this shortage of medical equipment with less time and resources.
Alexander Clarke, anesthesiologist from Australia, shared his research on Twitter March 19, with a 3D printer that can create a device called ‘ventilator splitter walls’ in just six hours, a ventilator. Can accommodate up to four people at a time.
Although such devices were previously used in different countries around the world, you can adjust Alex’s ventilator to suit each patient’s needs.
Alexander Clark’s research came to know when Abdullah Afzal, an engineer from Pakistan who was looking for a similar solution to alleviate Pakistan’s ventilator shortage, took advantage of this research. Prepared and tested Litter Splitter Walls.
Engineer Abdullah Afzal told the BBC that he founded a technology company after doing engineering in 2017. The company also exports various goods and has also made a jlibi making machine.
Abdullah and his team, with the help of Alexander Clark’s research, not only developed the device in a few days but also tested it at Shaukat Khanum Hospital.
However, he has done this experiment on an empty ventilator and no patient was seen.
Abdullah says, ‘We used to have 3D labs. In this lab we developed it with the help of a 3D printer and then established contacts with different hospitals. In which Shaukat Khanam experimented on it and declared it successful. ‘
According to Abdullah, so far he has provided ventilator suppliers to around 200 hospitals in different hospitals in Pakistan. “We’ve been working on it day and night. We are trying to provide to anyone who contacts us. ‘
Alexander Clark told the BBC that he had put his design on the Internet so that anyone could benefit from it free of charge. Although Alexander published his research in a journal, someone else Could not be submitted as their work, but they did not register or patent it in their name so that people could use it for free.
‘This design is still in the experimental stages and I myself have not used it on any patient. I am making it better through the response from all over the world, and in this regard I received the highest response from a Pakistani engineer. ‘
Alexander says the bulk of the device’s utility depends on having it manufactured with good quality 3D printers and materials, or that poorly-made splitter can be a threat to the patient’s life.
Abdullah says he is still bear the cost of producing these valentine letter suppliers. Abdullah and his team are part of a group called PACV, comprised of volunteer doctors and engineers.
When the Corona virus began to spread in Pakistan, it was felt that Pakistan did not have the proper capacity to deal with it. Which government officials have also expressed.
To cope with this situation, a professional medical engineer, doctor and others in Pakistan formed a group called PACV who are volunteering their services in the field of technology.
Dr Bilal Siddiqui, a Karachi-based PACV based in Pakistan, is currently serving as Chief Engineer in a private institution but before that he was associated as a teacher in various educational institutes.
He told the BBC: “At the time of the spread of the Corona virus in the country, I came to the idea that Pakistan did not have the technology and the various machinery to fight Corona while it would be needed. On which I suggested to social media groups, including professional engineers and a few of my students, that on this occasion we should work for our country and nation and Pakistan, we should not wait for the government. Let us see what the hospitals in Pakistan need at this time and what we can do.
Dr Bilal Siddiqui said, “When it was proposed, it was not surprising that many people, engineers affiliated with many small companies came out and asked what they could do. When we started to discuss it, it was understood that hospitals in Pakistan needed a lot of things. ”
