The demand for ventilators world-wide exceeds the available supply. In response to the scarcity of traditional intensive care ventilators, Penlon proposes a modified anesthesia ventilator to provide many ventilation options and features to treat COVID-19 patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
The ESO2 ventilator is similar to an intensive care ventilator and it can operate under the following modes: volume control, pressure control, SIMV, SMMV, and PSV. Using the WHO criteria for an intensive care ventilator it lacks the following features:
- Inspiratory pressure up to 80 cm H2O (ESO2 achieves 70 cm H2O)
Also, the ventilator does not offer other advanced “intelligent” modes offered by some intensive care ventilators. This ventilator also includes all the necessary alarms for safe patient care.
Based on its technical and clinical review, ECRI believes that the ESO2 ventilator will meet the needs of patients with severe respiratory distress and it can be used to treat COVID-19 patients that require mechanical ventilation.
Penlon (www.penlon.com) is a worldwide company headquartered in the United Kingdom, focused on the development and manufacture of anesthesia systems and other medical products. They have distribution and service networks worldwide.

Ventilators are pieces of medical equipment that provide ventilatory support to patients who cannot maintain adequate ventilation or oxygenation on their own due to illness, trauma, congenital defects or drugs.
Ventilators typically consist of a flexible breathing circuit, a pneumatic system, a control system, monitors and alarms. Depending on the type and complexity of the ventilator, the gas is delivered either using a single or dual limb breathing circuit. Most ventilators are microprocessor controlled to control the pressure, volume, and Fi02. Power is supplied from either an electrical wall outlet and/or a battery.
All ventilators require a source of oxygen. Critical care ventilators always require a source of oxygen at high pressure (approximately 4 Bar) while other ventilators require a high pressure or low flow (2-15 l/m) source of oxygen, depending on the individual ventilator. Mechanical ventilators have several operating modes which are chosen by clinicians to define breath initiation and end (i.e., cycle) as well as adjustable parameters such as pressure and flow. Different modes can also provide either full or partial ventilatory support, depending on the individual patient’s condition and clinical requirements.
High Flow Delivery Devices
High-flow oxygen delivery systems, commonly referred to as a High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) supply a given oxygen concentration at a higher than normal flow rate to the patient. These systems generally consist of three parts: the flow generator, an air-oxygen blender, and a heated humidifier. The heated and humidified air-oxygen is delivered to the patient via a specially designed nasal cannula.
The benefits of high-flow oxygen include the improvement of gas exchange and the decrease in the work of breathing. High-flow devices are capable of delivering a maximum flow of 60 l/min and all require a high-pressure source of air and oxygen at approximately 4 bars.
