Ventilator Delivery Update
Virgin Orbit Ventilators
With guidance from medical experts at the University of California-Irvine (UCI) and the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin), Virgin Orbit has developed a new mass-producible bridge ventilator to help in the fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Our device has now been authorized for use in the U.S. during the COVID-19 National Emergency. We have begun production, with the first 100 units expected to be delivered before the end of April; and we anticipate delivering hundreds of units per week going forward.
Form & Function
The Virgin Orbit ventilator is intended to provide automated, continuous or intermittent ventilatory support for patients suffering from respiratory failure. The beauty of the device is its simplicity, making it easy to deploy in a hospital or in the field, and extremely fast and inexpensive to manufacture.
The ventilator is in essence a very simple, very reliable, mechanical device designed to automate common manual resuscitators (also known as bag valve masks, and often referred to colloquially by the proprietary name “Ambu-bag”). The system can be used to treat moderate hypoxic and/or hypercarbic respiratory failure – in most settings, this would include the majority of COVID-19 patients – freeing up existing, more sophisticated ventilators to be used on patients with the most severe symptoms.
