The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized production of a simple, low-cost medical device designed at the University of Minnesota to mechanically inflate the lungs of patients suffering significant breathing problems for COVID-19.

The emergency-use device, called the Coventor, was designed in temporary working digs in a conference room at the U. It was conceived to sell for as little money as possible. And it would not exist without donations and collaboration involving private companies that don't normally work on the same team.
