Monitoring and Analysis of COVID-19 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome on Ventilators

Front-line clinicians have reported that different respiratory stiffness results in different COVID-19 patient conditions on ventilators. In this project, we test and improve NovaResp’s monitoring hardware and analyze the collected data for development of algorithms with focus on respiratory stiffness of patients with COVID-19. The resulting algorithms and monitoring device could lead to determine whether patients need to be intubated, and when under ventilation, what ventilatory settings need to be applied for better patient outcome.
