Cerveceria Nacional Finances the Manufacture of Emergency-Use Ventilators

April 2021.- Cervecería Nacional, in alliance with Openventi, joints the financing of 200 mechanical respirators. The ventilators have the academic endorsement of ESPOL and are being used by hospitals nationwide.

The Emergency-Use Ventilators manufactured by Openventi are for compassionate use, this means that they are a last resort resource in patients with Covid-19 who are in a highly complex situation, and who do not have immediate access to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

“Our commitment to the development and progress of the country is absolute, and we feel deeply honored to be part of supporting ESPOL and Openventi in this project that seeks to contribute with the hospital capacity of several centers nationwide. This equipment becomes a valuable resource for doctors and a life expectancy for patients. I take the opportunity to thank all of our medical and hospital staff who continue to be the front line of fight, and we call on citizens to respect biosecurity measures and to be responsible for their health and those of their families,” commented Martha González, VP of Corporate Affairs of Cerveceria Nacional.

Cervecería Nacional has invested 40 thousand dollars to finance the manufacture of Openventi’s ventilators. The equipments will be delivered to hospitals that are currently at the limit of their capacity, due to their size or structure, and that don’t have an Intensive Care Unit. The first joint delivery will be made to the IESS Hospital of Cuenca, the Basic Hospital of El Empalme, the Basic Hospital of Calceta, and the Government of Loja. To reach more locations, the company will also make an important donation to the organization Salvar Vidas, which will be in charge of locating these equipments in the medical centers that need it most.

“The support of Cervecería Nacional to the Openventi project allows us to reach more hospitals and provide ventilators at a critical time for the country, as well as helping to generate innovation in Ecuador in a field in which there are no precedents,” said Paul Estrella, Coordinator of Operations in Openventi.
