Tesla Shows Video of Ventilators Being Built Out of Car Parts
Ventilators are in huge demand right now. Companies from around the world are attempting to make variations of these much-needed machines to help with the demand. Electric car automaker, Tesla, has stepped up to do the same thing. They are taking existing car parts normally used in their vehicles and re-purposing them into ventilators.
The design uses the vehicles infotainment system and touch screen that typically goes into the Tesla Model 3. The system also allows the user to adjust pressure, flow, and volume coming out of the ventilator. The interface also allows the user to watch over the patient's breathing and record it all. Tesla posted a video earlier in the week to show how far they have come and to show off their working prototype.
