Jacobs School Researchers on Help Address Ventilator Concerns

Updated May 8, 2020

Researchers — including Sanjay Sethi, MD; Ruogang Zhao, PhD; Albert H. Titus, PhD; and Chi Zhou, PhD — are developing a system that has the potential to turn resuscitators into devices that, like mechanical ventilators, help patients breathe without the assistance of another person. Sethi is a professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine; Zhao is an associate professor of biomedical engineering; Titus is a professor and chair of biomedical engineering; and Zhou is an associate professor in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
