Background and 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.
