Technology Transfer of Novel Non-invasive Ventilator-‘SVASTA’

Interest Exploration Note

VSSC/ISRO has developed a gas-powered ventilator – ‘Space Ventilator Aided System for Trauma Assistance (SVASTA)’ - for basic mode for non-invasive ventilation. This ventilator is well suited for emergency use for first line treatment and as transit ventilators inside vehicles. The basic design is simple, and the components can be easily mass produced for emergency use in pandemic like situations.

The innovative ventilator runs on compressed air. It is able to perform various ventilation conditions using manual mechanical settings. The system is capable of pressure control ventilation (PCV) in its basic mode of operation with provision for setting different tidal volumes. The basic ventilator design can be re-engineered appropriately by the manufacturer to cater to various modes of ventilation with control systems, electronics, and associated software.
