It is a non-invasive respiratory aid equipment based on a development of Mercedes Benz
Formula One Team, the University College London and the University College London Hospital
in Great Britain to fight the Covid-19.
It is a C-PAP device used in hospitals of China and Italy to treat infection caused by
Coronavirus. The results were encouraging because approximately the half of patients in whom
it was used did not need artificial respirators.
The Portable Pneumatic Ventilator represents an intermediate option between the oxygen mask
and the need of a complete mechanical ventilation, that requires the patient is previously
Its use could be the key to reduce the respirators demand and to avoid the occupation of
intensive therapy beds with less severe patients.
A patient connected to a C-PAP device could remain in a common room, leaving Intensive Care
Units to the less extreme cases.
This possibility will result in a lower personal requiere and lower costs for patient care.
Type: PRESSURE +
Functioning: Pneumatic (medical oxygen air)
Work Pressure: 3,5 kg / cm2 (Internal Regulator)
Inhalation phase: Adjustable pre-established time. Minimum time 0,2 sec. – Maximum 2,0 sec.
Exhalation phase: Minimum time 0,5 sec. – Maximum 4,0 sec.
Relation I: E 4:1 a 1:20
Ventilator maximum pressure: Limited by a safety valve to 60cm/H2O.
Inspiratory flow: Independent and changeable 0,25 a 1,0 l/sec.
Minimum pressure: Atmospheric
Pressure indicator: Instrument 20 a 100 cmm/H2O
Expiratory resistance: According to the circuit used. In the case of a patient valve with a circuit
in 22 mm. Diameter at 50 I/ min. – 2,1 cm/ H2O (+ -) 12%
Security: Patient valve in the case of an open position fault, allowing spontaneous breathing.
Adjustable anti-exhaust relief valve between 20 and 60 cm/ H2O.
Alarm: Not incorporated into the autonomous equipment. It provides an external model with
luminous minimum/maximum indicator and an acoustic alarm in case of pressure loss or nozzle
Inspiratory time 1 sec. gas flow rate regulation 0,75 I/ sec.
Volume= t (sec) x gas flow (l/sec) = 1 x 0,75 = 750 ml.
How does it work?
The JGO C-PAP produces flow over time cycles like a flow pressure transformator. It works by
pushing an oxygen and air mixture to the patient’s mouth and nose , in a continuous frequency,
producing an increase of oxygen that goes to the lungs.
It is a compact and easy to use equipment. It works with an estandar connection of the oxygen
hose and it allows multiple uses.
It performs autonomously, without the need of electricity.
