Focus Conjecture For Manual Ventilation By Sandra Allen - September 18, 2021 0 11 Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp This first Conjecture was brainstormed after reading about how nurses struggle to maintain a consistent pressure from patient to patient. There is a variation in each nurse depending on their size, and grip strength. Also, each patient is different and their Tidal Pressure depends on their height and ideal body weight and then changes from there depending on the depth of breathing. Manual Ventilators are unable to assess how reliant a patient is on the oxygen they are being given so it is likely that patients are always receiving too much or too little. I have designed a manual ventilation bag that will help healthcare workers to decipher how much oxygen they should be giving to a patient. There are flexible but stiff guard’s inside of the bag to help nurses know when they have pressed the bag far enough and they can be adjusted based on the patients size. Also, on the mouth portion of the ventilator there is a light which will flash to tell nurses when to begin pressing and when to stop. This should help to ensure the same breath given every time.
