Tesla’s breathing machine is coming, Musk says it’s going to be mass-produced soon to be sent to the hospital.

The global epidemic is spreading wildly, and the importance of ventilators speaks for itself. Faced with a shortage of ventilators, many companies have said they will invest in the production of medical devices such as ventilators. Earlier, Tesla CEO Elon Musk also said publicly that Tesla and Space X could switch to ventilators if there was a shortage of ventilators.

但很多人并不相信,据从事相关产业的外国网友介绍,呼吸机属于高端制造业,在生产线、供应链,以及核心技术等存在着很深的壁垒,特别是在密封性和流量控制方面,不是朝夕之间就可解决的,因此当时马斯克也受到了很多质疑。

Of course, for Musk, daring to “quive” must have its own undertones, and he and his engineers don’t think it’s technically difficult to build a ventilator, because tesla and Space X both have experience of making ventilation and life-support-related devices.

Now Musk has made this a reality, and the ventilators they’re producing are really coming, and they’re designed to be “hard core” and “smart. ” Take a look at Tesla’s ventilators:

First, they use a lot of car parts on the Model 3 to make their ventilators, rather than using parts from medical devices, which means they don’t “take away” the supply chain of professional manufacturers;

The image below shows the overall design of the Tesla Ventilator, with orange modules all of which are parts of a Tesla car.

According to reports, one of the core of the ventilator is “flow control”, in this regard, Tesla used the Model 3 control computer to drive to control the ventilator precision variable valve exchange information, while the Model 3 that 15-inch screen as a breather control panel, can adjust the air pressure, flow, air volume, plus other components, to form a complete set of medical ventilators.

If there is a change in the patient’s breathing, the large screen will show both the current and 12 seconds ago curve, the doctor can determine whether the condition is better or worse based on the change in the curve.

Tesla also has a backup system on the ventilator, including oxygen tanks, pumps and batteries, to respond to emergencies, and gives doctors 20-40 minutes to move patients, giving them more flexible treatments.

(Engineering, non-production)

It can be said that this set of ventilators from design to production, are very “Tesla”.

Tesla’s ventilators are expected to be mass-produced soon and put into use in hospitals.
