News: Guidance for ventilator design and use released

In the context of Covid-19, CIEHF specialists are using their collective knowledge to provide designers and manufacturers with human factors guidance for rapid production.

This week, we responded to an urgent request from the NHS for human factors advice for designers and manufacturers of ventilators. Following consultation with our expert members, the guidance was written, edited, designed and sent to NHS England within 48hrs.

The guide, 'Human Factors in the Design and Operation of Ventilators for Covid-19' will be sent to manufacturers of ventilators in the UK, and is available to download.
