In addition, Vingroup also sent 200 VFS-510 ventilators to the Singaporean Embassy in Vietnam to help them fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Vietnam and Russia have always helped each other during difficult times," the ambassador highlighted, "The gift presented to us today shows the goodwill and friendship between our two countries."

As reported, the Vsmart VFS-410 is an invasive ventilator based on turbine technology with similar features to other high-end portable invasive ventilators on the market. The ventilator has sensors that monitor and give warnings of maintaining oxygen levels, positive end-expiratory pressure, and patient breathing.

It can also self-adjust to synchronize with breathing. The ventilator is compact, lightweight, and portable. It can be used in ambulances, emergency situations at the scene, and at hospitals after the Covid-19 pandemic is controlled.

Meanwhile, the VSmart VFS-510 uses technology transferred and improved from a commonly used ventilator from US-based Medtronic, the world’s leading producer of breathing apparatus. The VFS-510 is compact, lightweight, and portable. It has six flexible breathing modes that can be used for both adult and pediatric patients who need invasive or noninvasive breathing support.
