GM recently delivered the ventilators created with Ventec Life Systems to hospitals across the United States. Ventec Life Systems and GM were able to fulfill part of the 30,000 units requested by the United States Government. The rest of the 30,000 units are expected to be delivered by August.
The two organizations announced their collaborative efforts on March 20th, and since then have worked together to produce ventilation units named ‘VOCSN.’ The units were delivered to hospitals in Chicago, as well as Olympia Field.
Overall the production of ventilators by GM shows how companies can retrofit manufacturing facilities to create units to help alleviate the burden on the health care system, during the outbreak of COVID-19.
