The DTU-VENT non-invasive ventilator has several outstanding features such as pressure control, volume control and assist control to meet the needs of each patient, with a battery to guarantee three hours of continuous operation in case of power failure.

Since the covid19 pandemic has created huge demand for hospital ventilators to treat patients with acute respiratory failure, Chairman Huynh Duc Tho encouraged the research team to continue finalizing their design while asking the Da Nang Department of Science & Technology to fund DTU’s project to soon put it into mass production. 
Director of Da Nang Department of Health Ms. Ngo Thi Kim Yen and Mr. Tran Van Hoang, Deputy-Director of Da Nang Department of Science & Technology will monitor and help the research team perfect their prototype ventilator. A science council will be created to undertake the appraisal of DTU-VENT ventilators.
