Fitbit gains FDA authorization for its low-cost emergency ventilator

Fitbit got Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from US FDA for its low-cost Fitbit Flow emergency ventilator, and it also doesn’t require very much training or expertise to use even.

It is based on MIT E-Vent system, as well as specs provided by the UK Govt for ventilators to be used by hospitals in that country during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

Ventilators like Flow aren’t designed to replace existing, traditional medical ventilators – instead, they’re intended as stopgaps, to be used only when that hardware isn’t available in quantities needed to treat patients.
