Project description

This electronic prototype has been developed to improve/simplify the use of the Auxiliary Manual Breathing Unit (AMBU): the AMBU+ helps the healthcare professional to perform more accurate ventilation procedure by making it as accurate as possible by indicating the frequency with which the operator needs to ventilate the patient. The frequency is indicated using a visual and an audio signal. The operator can choose between two different modes of use: the first one for a normal ventilation procedure and the second one for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
