Ventilator ManifoldS

In response to the COVID19 outbreak, ThrivalTech has teamed up the the COVID Skunkworks Group in southern Oregon and designed a multi-port manifold for the Avea Part #: 32029-001 from Vyaire.

  

This manifold is meant to allow up to 6 patients to use a single ventilator vs a single patient per ventilator.

This should only be used in a hospital setting, by trained experts, who understand the dangers of putting multiple patients on a single ventilator, and only as a last resort.

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

This instructable features the ThrivalTech manifold 3D print instructions and other related instructions on how to make one yourself.

SANITIZATION

There are many sanitization techniques, but SkunkWorks recommends a bath of Isopropanol (IPA) at 75 % concentration for 5 minutes. This link will take you to a page with other effective sanitization techniques. 

REUSE

Provided effective sanitization procedures are followed, this device should be re-usable if it is free of defects, cracks, or tears.
