Shwaasa is a Smart Ventilator designed and developed by Product Realization Centre (PRC)**, part of Mechatronics Lab, Department of Electronic Systems Engineering (DESE), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore.
Shwaasa is an automated programmable assisted mechanical ventilator system. The system can be operated in – Constant Volume and Constant Pressure modes. The in-built pressure sensor detects the natural breathing rate of the patient and can assist the patient in breathing properly.
Shwaasa is developed using affordable indigenous components which can be manufactured quickly in large numbers, so that our country can be self-sufficient in meeting its urgent healthcare needs.
