BDR-19™ Critical-Care Ventilator


Background & Challenges

The BDR-19™ Critical-Care Ventilator is an easy to use, mass produced, full featured critical care ventilator that was created as a response to the global Covid-19 pandemic. It required the Nectar team to dive into an unforeseen remote work environment while navigating tight timelines and extreme supply chain challenges.

The unmet need that hospitals around the country were facing called for ventilators that are both easy to train on and mass producible with easily sourced components, something that would typically take years to develop. Nectar rose to the challenge, delivering an FDA approved ventilator created with locally sourced components within 10 months of the project start date.

Leveraging Our Resources to Help Patients Breathe Easier

While continuing to develop other projects on schedule, Nectar’s team recognized that lives were being lost as a result of ventilator shortages. With daily interdisciplinary meetings, agile methodology, and a commitment to our company values, we worked with engineers, designers, and clinicians to ensure that these ventilators would be available to save lives as soon as possible.

We leveraged our team’s experience with medical and critical care devices, our existing presence within the supply chain, and our ISO 13485:2016 QMS Certification to take the BDR-19™ Critical-Care Ventilator to hospitals around the world.
