Formula One engineers help create breathing aids for coronavirus patients

  Formula One engineers help create breathing aids for coronavirus patients The machines, which could go into production within a week, will hopefully reduce the number of COVID-19 patients who need to be put on ventilators.Since March 18, the researchers and engineers have been working to develop the breathing devices together with clinicians at UCL Hospital, where they will now undergo clinical trials. The aids have already been cleared for use by the UK's regulator, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), and Mercedes can begin producing 1,000 machines per day in a week's time for immediate delivery to hospitals.

FDNY EMS paramedic Christell Cadet ― who shared her coronavirus struggle with the world last week from her hospital bed ― is now unable to breathe comfortably on her own and has been hooked up to a ventilator, her distraught family told the Daily News Tuesday.

Cadet, 34, is sedated and has a breathing tube down her throat, but hasn’t given up the fight, her family and friends said.

  Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger Hospitalized Due to Coronavirus Songwriter Adam Schlesinger, best known for co-founding Fountains of Wayne, has been hospitalized due to the coronavirus, but has not been placed in a medically induced coma as suggested elsewhere. Variety first reported the news and Schlesinger’s long-time attorney, Josh Grier, confirmed the details to Rolling Stone. Schlesinger has been in a hospital in upstate New York for over a week and is receiving good care. Grier said that while he obviously can’t go visit Schlesinger, the doctor reports he’s received have not once used the term “coma,” but rather stated that the musician is heavily sedated, as is necessary to be on a ventilator.

On Friday, Cadet was well enough to speak to CNN from her Long Island hospital, where she was admitted last week.

But over the weekend, her condition took a dramatic turn for the worse, said her family and friends, who are unable to visit her due to the highly-contagious nature of the virus.

“She has definitely gotten worse,” said friend and fellow FDNY EMS paramedic Sherry Singleton, who last spoke with Cadet via text on Saturday. Cadet’s condition then showed signs of small signs of deterioration, Singleton said. Her friend was short of breath and getting oxygen round the clock.

By Monday, Cadet was unreachable by either phone or text — and her concerned family soon learned why.

Dyson to manufacture 15,000 ventilators following UK call for help

  Dyson to manufacture 15,000 ventilators following UK call for help Many companies have offered to build much-needed ventilators during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, notably GM, Ford and Tesla. However, Dyson has now stepped up to the plate and the UK company known for vacuum cleaners and fans might have an edge over other non-ventilator makers. It developed the "CoVent" device in just ten days using Dyson's current digital motor technology, according to CNN, and has already received an order for 10,000 units from the UK's National Health Service (NHS).

Cadet was transferred to the ICU and sedated, her mother, Jessy Cadet, 61, told The News. The family learned the news early Tuesday.

“Since this morning it’s really, really difficult for me. I can’t think or focus. I try to remind myself I have to remain strong even though she can’t hear me right now,” the anxious mother said.

Cadet was hospitalized a week ago after she collapsed outside her Queens home upon returning from an EMS tour. Her family found her on her hands and knees and struggling to breathe. She later tested positive for coronavirus.

On Friday, speaking to CNN from her hospital bed, Cadet said she’d been working light duty — meaning not doing ambulance tours — with EMS for the past several weeks. She was not handling patients directly and only interacting with other FDNY staff.

“It’s terrifying and we’re just hoping she makes it through to the other side,” her friend Singleton said.
