Mexico City.- A mechatronics engineer, two respiratory therapists, two industrial automation entrepreneurs, a mechanical designer and the Nuevo León Resurge Association, work against time to design an easy-to-make and cheap respiratory ventilator that can save the life of those with severe symptoms from Covid19.

On March 22, the engineer from Monterrey Jaime Saucedo de la Peña launched a call on his Facebook page that received a response from other professionals who support him to create the design.

Seven days after the call this Sunday, they began to assemble the prototype and do computer programming to control the patient’s ventilation rate.
