Building a Pandemic Ventilator

On Thursday May 29, Jeff and I gave a presentation about the Pandemic Ventilator Project to some of my friends and colleagues at work. The presentation went smoothly and was well received. We received encouragement from the attendees to continue working on the project. We had the presentation videotaped so that more people could see it. Thank you Manuel for your help and ideas in videotaping this presentation.

The presentation is about 35 minutes in length overall and is divided into 4 sections below as YouTube videos. The title of the presentation was "Building a Pandemic Ventilator”. It is an overview of what we are tying to achieve with the Pandemic Ventilator Project.
