NUVENT-An ICU Ventilator Indigenously Developed by NUTECH

NUTECH engineers and scientists are developing solution to deadly outbreak of COVID-19 for medically compromised patients

Pakistan is currently recovering from COVID-19 and taking appropriate steps to uproot the devastating effects of the disease. Mitigation of the disease can only be made possible if the healthcare system is well-equipped with medical paraphernalia and personnel besides protective measures. The prevalent up rise in CORONA virus cases has choked our already laid up health systems, that are deficient in critical health care equipment such as mechanical ventilators. Thus, to address the issue of severe shortage of ventilators, saving time and foreign exchequer, NUTECH team of expert engineers and scientists, put their heads and hands together to devise an indigenous mechanical ventilator with high standards for medical use, yet in affordable prices for the benefit of our people. The NuVent will meet the needs of patients who have acute respiratory problems.

The NuVent is an ICU ventilator employing the highest of all standards using medical grade components where applicable, for its reliable performance as a lifesaving device for critically ill patients. Since it is a life critical device, it has strictly followed the international safety standards and PEC and DRAP standards. The industrial sector is lined up to help NUTECH for batch production of NuVent with economical prices easily affordable for local hospitals. 
Already NuVent has been hailed as an innovative and state of the art piece of technology by local experts in the field. It is very likely that within the next few months, apart from benefiting the national exchequer and saving precious lives, export to others countries to support them in this fight against COVID-19, will also be conceivable. 

Development of 3D Printer

The Mechanical Department Team at NUTECH has developed a prototype 3D printer from scratch during ICAT 2020. The design is based on easy-to-find materials in the market. This project has been approved for the development of a commercial scale 3D printer named as NUPRINT. Our objective is to develop our own Graphic User Interface (GUI) for obtaining user design and printing requirements. Hence NUPRINT can target current local market in a better way as compared to other commercially available 3D Printers. Design and mechanism of this NUPRINT will be such that it can be developed from easily accessible components.
