Dyson has perfected a medical ventilator that it has named CoVent, reports CNN. The famous household appliance manufacturer plans to fill a major order for the new device from the British National Health Service (NHS).

The goal is to be able to install the ventilator next to any hospital bed where it may be needed by a patient suffering from breathing difficulties. For key mechanical functions, the new device makes use of a motor that is identical to those installed in the brand's vacuum cleaners. The ventilator will be officially made available in British hospitals when it fully meets British health authority specifications.
