Is this ventilator as good as a normal ventilator?
Yes. While the HEV ventilator design is not intended to replace the high-end devices needed for the most intense phase of treatment, it will be appropriate and useful in the hospital environment for milder symptoms or long term care and recovery.
What features are lacking on this base-device?
What settings can be adjusted?
How does this complexity relate to the use of simple ventilators? Can the HEV ventilators really be a solution?
What is the role of the WHO which is mentioned in the proposal?
As far as production is concerned, [...] directly through industry, for which purpose contacts have been established with the WHO, on the basis of the Cooperation Agreement in place between CERN and WHO.
