“Find out the Grand Design Prize awarded today by CubaOndi to the PCUVENTE Pulmonary Emergency Ventilator of the Cneuro. Congratulations, congratulations to those involved in this project,” underlines the message of said scientific institution on its Twitter social network account.
Previously, the Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment conferred the National Award for Technological Innovation on this mill, which responds to the State’s strategy of achieving technological sovereignty.
The device known as Pcuvente is primarily used for emergency mechanical ventilation in adult patients.
One of its managers, Telecommunications Engineer Ernesto Velarde, explained that his employment proved to be of great help in intensive care units, recovery rooms and during transfers inside or outside a hospital.
Said tool will allow the Antillean nation to have a greater response capacity for those patients in need of controlled or assisted ventilation, Velarde remarked.
Likewise, it alleviates the burden of having to use other similar equipment that has higher benefits and is necessary for intensive care in a less complex situation, he pointed out.
This, in addition, takes advantage of the ease of use of manual resuscitation bags designed for cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Together with Pcuvente, Cneuro is working on another ventilator known as Ventipap, created for non-invasive respiratory support and which allows specialized personnel to regulate the concentration of oxygen supplied.
