PVA Awarded for New Emergency Ventilator Developed for COVID-19 Patients

Oct 03, 2020

PVA received a 2020 GLOBAL Technology Award in the category of Best Product – North America for its PREVENT™ Emergency Resuscitator. The award was announced during a Virtual Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2020.

Frank Hart, Managing Director at PVA, commented: “It’s a tremendous honor to receive such a prestigious award for such an important product.  So many people at PVA were involved in this project and we share this with our employees and New Yorkers that were impacted by COVID-19.”

PREVENT ™ is an FDA-authorized emergency ventilator designed to treat patients suffering from COVID-19 respiratory failure. This motorized device automatically compresses an Ambu® bag to provide air to the lungs of a COVID-19 patient, eliminating the human error and fatigue that results from manual resuscitation.

PREVENT is indicated for emergency resuscitation with appropriate critical care monitoring on adult patients over 66 pounds that require mechanical respiratory support.  PVA is the first manufacturing company in the world, outside of the medical device industry, to receive an FDA Emergency Use Authorization for ventilators to combat COVID-19.

PVA is the first manufacturer outside of the medical device industry to receive FDA emergency authorization for ventilators anywhere in the world.

The GLOBAL Technology Awards have recognized the very best new innovations in the printed circuit assembly and packaging industries since 2005. The prestigious awards contest has been bringing together the global SMT and advanced packaging industry in a celebration of the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving our industry forward.
