EghtesadOnline: An Iranian knowledge-based firm for the first time has launched a mass production line for medical ventilators used in the Intensive Care Unit.
As reported by Iran’s Vice Presidential Office for Science and Technology, the first production line for domestically-produced medical ventilators was inaugurated by Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari.
Iranian experts and technicians spent 88,000 hours over three years on research and development to manufacture the mechanical ventilator, Mehr News Agency reported on Monday.
A medical ventilator is a machine designed to move breathable air into and out of the lungs, to assist patients with respiratory problems. A failure to get oxygen into the heart tissue is one of the most common causes of death linked to heart diseases, Financial Tribune reported.
