LifeVent is compatible with all hospital systems and consumable materials such as masks, connections to air and oxygen distribution and others.  As a result, the user interface is familiar to the staff with minimal training requirements.  An operator can learn to use the LifeVent ventilator in less than 10 minutes.

“The design of the ventilator is not only focused on high reliability, but on industrial field- proven components from reliable global suppliers” says Kaan. “LifeVent is now going through the latest tests and approvals and will soon be available worldwide. We believe that this new type of ventilator will be a big help for various countries.”
