My father lives in a 3rd world country (Honduras) and may very soon find himself in need of a ventilator. I wanted to reach out to this community because I have been watching the development of this ventilator and I thought it was a great project.
I want to build a barebones ventilator based on this project, but I am having trouble finding a good place to start. My brother is an anesthesiologist, and he has know-how on how to run and watch a patient under ventilator support. I had already bought the microcontroller components (as I need to have them shipped to myself). I am an electrical engineer myself and I believe I can put together the machine with tools I have in hand.
I would greatly appreciate any guidance or comments on using this resource, I look forward to hearing from you.
