The carmaker on Sunday posted a video on YouTube featuring a group of engineers showing off a prototype ventilator built with automobile parts. A four-minute-long video was posted to YouTube revealing a prototype ventilator powered by numerous same components used in the TeslaModel 3.
Tesla engineers in a YouTube video uploaded Sunday explained they're "trying to make some ventilators out of some vehicle parts so that we can help out the medical industry without taking away from their supply", showing a prototype for a ventilator that's "heavily based on Tesla auto parts" and makes use of the Model 3's infotainment system.
"They're actually not talking about making the entire ventilator, they're talking about one part of the ventilator", says DeRosa. Last month, Elon Musk who owns Tesla and SpaceX said that the company planned to deliver FAD-approved ventilators for free to hospitals to those regions where Tesla delivers its cars.
On March 30, Ford said it would produce 50,000 ventilators in the following 100 days at a plant in MI in cooperation with General Electric's healthcare unit, and could then build 30,000 per month as needed.
It takes in air via a medical-grade supply into a mixing chamber. From the artificial lung, the exhaled air goes through another sensor through the exhale pipe and is used to throttle pressure.
The touchscreen of the Model 3 functions as the ventilator display.
Tesla designed the manifold, so the whole setup of wires is easy to put together. They will also need FDA (Food and Drug Association) approval to start shipping these ventilators to hospitals.
In other words, a wide variety of breathing difficulties can be solved using Tesla ventilators in Coronavirus patients. Tesla too has been working towards the cause and for which, they have been designing a ventilator.
