Health Industry Hub | March 30, 2020 |

MedTech News: Australia is seeking to dramatically boost stocks ventilators in intensive care units. The coronavirus crisis is placing immense pressure on the global availability of ventilators, which are needed respiratory support of critically ill patients.

GE Healthcare and ResMed have elevated efforts in manufacturing ventilators to support clinicians, governments and the broader healthcare community in the fight against COVID-19.

GE Healthcare and Ford Motor Company will work together to scale the production of ventilators, arming clinicians with medical equipment important in the treatment of COVID-19 patients. Through this collaboration, Ford will provide its technical and production expertise with the goal of manufacturing a simplified design of GE Healthcare’s existing ventilator. This new system would be built specifically to address urgent needs during the pandemic, equipped with the essential functions required to safely treat COVID-19 patients.

“We are encouraged by how quickly companies from across industries have mobilised to help address the growing challenge we collectively face from COVID-19,” said GE Healthcare president and CEO Kieran Murphy. “We are proud to bring our clinical and technical expertise to this collaboration with Ford, working together to serve unprecedented demand for this life-saving technology and support clinicians as they meet patient needs.”
