Abstract
The SAVe II life support mechanical ventilator proposed in phase II will meet all of the needs for modern ventilation on the battlefield and any pre-hospital environment where ease of use, size, cost , safety and functionality is critical. Currently there are no commercial mechanical ventilators that will meet the specifications of this design based on the needs of the Tactical Combat Casualty Care doctrine. The design for SAVe II based on the lessons learned from phase I will deliver increased flow from a new blower design along with expanded control options of Tidal Volume, Respiratory Rate, Positive End-Expiratory Pressure, and Peak Inspiratory Pressure. The SAVe II also includes a Breathe Assist mode for spontaneously breathing patients, ,lithium batteries to increase the operational time of the device for up to 8-12 hours of continuous operation. The overall design of the SAVe II lends itself well to be used on a day to day basis or stockpiled for use in the event of a major pandemic and can operate with room air, compressed oxygen, oxygen generators, and is compatible with currant draw over anesthesia devices.
