Pitch your solution.

This project is about solving the current Coronavirus crisis of the world by developing a device that can fight the virus and sustain the life of infected patient with COVID-19.

This project is about building a modified oxygen therapy that create an unfavorable environment for the coronavirus while supplying oxygen to sustain the life of the patient by using a mechanism that release hot oxygen under capacity of the patient and pressurized oxygen under capacity of the patient respiratory system with t seconds apart.

The objective of this project is giving an input for scientist and researchers working on solution for the coronavirus. Based on the research I conducted on what has been done and is currently doing to save the infected peoples, this concept will add big value.

What specific problem are you solving?

Currently there is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for COVID-19 and no vaccine is available. The treatment is symptomatic and oxygen therapy represents the major treatment intervention for patients with severe infection. Mechanical ventilation may be necessary in cases of respiratory failure refractory to oxygen therapy, whereas hemodynamic support is essential for managing septic shock. In any case the current treatment bases on supplying enough oxygen to the body and hope for the patient to recover.

What is your solution?

According to first data on stability and resistance of SARS coronavirus compiled by members of WHO laboratory network, “heat at 56°C kills the SARS coronavirus at around 10000 units per 15 min (quick reduction).”  We cannot use this much temperature to kill the virus when it is inside a patient because the patient‘s body cannot handle it. So the main question is what else can we use to generate same negative effect on the virus as applying 56°C that does not harm the patient’s body. The answer is combination of heat and pressure. By raising the temperature and pressure of the oxygen until the maximum capacity of the patient’s respiratory system, we can generate a mechanism that attack the virus. But the problem is that raising the pressure and temperature of the oxygen at same time might create additional friction generating more heat that will harm the patient. So by developing a device that release hot oxygen and higher pressure oxygen under capacity of the patient with in interval of t seconds that will be supplied to the patient using a tube, we can create an unfavorable environment for the coronavirus to decrease in number and even to eradicate completely.

Who does your solution serve, and in what ways will the solution impact their lives?

The objective of this project is giving an input for scientist and researchers working on solution for the coronavirus. Based on the research I conducted on what has been done and is currently doing to save the infected peoples, this concept will add big value. The design of the mechanism that release hot oxygen under capacity of the patient and pressurized oxygen with t seconds apart will be uploaded soon.
