Ethereal is creating moulds of ventilator splitters to help hospitals cope with the shortfall of the crucial life-support device. Another HealthTech startup, MolBio, has developed an indigenous, portable and battery-operated RT-PCR machine to scale India’s testing capabilities, even in the remotest areas. Since MolBio is not only making testing kits but the PCR machines itself, they have pitched in to address the huge bottleneck in testing capacity.

Ventilators are definitely the need of the hour. But while the Indian companies are developing their solutions, there are some others that have jumped in to offer an alternative and quick solution to use the available high-cost ventilators to its maximum content with ventilator splitters. Bengaluru-based deeptech startups Ethereal Machines and Cradlewise are leveraging their technology to manufacture ventilator splitter, which can allow a ventilator to be used by two patients simultaneously with varying needs via differential pressure splitting. Learning from western countries, the companies have focused on preventing cross-contamination between paired patients.

Bengaluru-based Ethereal Machines has also pitched in with its own efforts to enhance ventilators which are a crucial device in the fight against COVID-19. Since the virus attacks the lungs, the ventilators can provide breathing assistance to patients in an advanced stage of the infection. But India does not have a sufficient number of such devices. Media reports peg the total number in the country anywhere between 17,000 and 57,000. Ethereal Machines is creating splitters for ventilators thereby enabling them to provide support to two patients at the same time.

Currently, India is facing a huge shortage of ventilators. As per rough estimates, India has around 40K ventilators with many of them even not in working conditions. With the number of coronavirus cases increasing each day, the demand for ventilators is going to increase in the near future and 40K of them might not prove to be sufficient enough. To meet the demand of ventilators, Bengaluru-based Ethereal Machines provides a ventilator splitter uniquely designed for managing two patients with varying needs via differential pressure splitting.

Bengaluru-based tech startup Ethereal Machines has created a ventilator splitter using 3D printing. Already tested at Aster Hospital in the city, the splitter can split the supply into a 50-50 ratio to provide oxygen from one source to two patients. In cases where one patient’s condition is worse than the other, the startup has created a differential ventilator splitter which can split the oxygen supply into 30-70 ratio.

A Bengaluru-based deep-tech start-up, Ethereal Machines, is addressing the problem to some extent by enabling the existing ventilators to cater to the different requirements of multiple patients, depending upon their criticality. The Blume Ventures-backed firm, which specialises in technologies associated with computerised numerical control (CNC) machining and 3D printing, has come up with an innovation to augment the capacities of existing ventilators, in dire circumstances. Simple 3D printed splitters that divide the supply of oxygen into two halves have been tried out successfully in Europe.
