Critically-ill adult patients in the third-world can require breathing support during power outages. However, existing manual ventilation methods can lead to ventilator induced lung injury (VILI) if poorly applied.1. Automated ventilation of patients which remains operational off-grid could improve consistency of care and patient outcomes.
