CSIR-National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Bengaluru, a constituent lab of CSIR has developed a BiPAP Non Invasive Ventilator “SwasthYa” for COVID -19.
BiPAP Non-Invasive ventilator is a microcontroller-based precise closed-loop adaptive control system with a built-in biocompatible “3D printed manifold & coupler” with HEPA filter (Highly Efficient Particulate Air Filter).
