COVID-19

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), Penlon has designed and released a solution for an alternative ventilator. Their solution requires an anesthetic machine, a Penlon Nuffield 200 ventilator, a PEEP vale, and a Bain Circuit.

They are looking to bypass the usual two to three years of development and launching to respond to the high demand for support of ventilator units. They have worked with the MHRA and NHS to meet appropriate ventilation requirements.
