Indian couples in the United States have been able to make a big jump in the field of cosmetic treatment. They have developed their own ventilator which is indispensable for treatment. Their invention is an inexpensive portable emergency ventilator. These ventilators, which are under construction on a large scale, will be very helpful to developing countries including India.
The ventilator was designed by Devesh Rajan, a professor at the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tex, and his wife, Kumuda Ranjan, a family physician in Atlanta. The first sample was prepared three weeks ago.
They say the ventilator costs $ 100 if it is mass-produced. Manufacturers can get huge profits in the market even if they sell for $ 500. The same type of ventilator costs an average of $ 10,000 in the US, says Devesh Ranjan.
Devesh Ranjan, however, said the ICUs they created were not ventilators and were more sophisticated and expensive. Known as the Open Air GT, these ventilators make breathing easier for any patient with shortness of breath.
Devesh hails from Patna, Bihar. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the Trichy Regional Engineering College and a Masters Degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. George Tex has been working at the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering for the past six years.
Kumuda is a native of Ranchi. She immigrated to the United States with her parents when she was six years old. The medical study was conducted in New Jersey.
