KSTP’s Ehya Darman produces ventilators to fight against COVID۱۹


Ehya Darman Pishrafte Company, the member of Khorasan Science and Technology Park has recently achieved a success to produce 30 ventilator machines per day to assist patients infected by COVID19 virus.

The demand for ventilator machines has been dramatically increased in Iran after the country was affected by corona virus disease.

“So far, the ventilator machines produced by this knowledge-based company have been used in 460 medical centers and more than 3500 ventilator machines have been installed in the whole country” said Hamidreza Behfarmoghadam, the deputy production manager of Ehya Darman Pishrafte.

The company had the license to produce 5 machines a day but this number has been increased to 30 after the spread of corona virus.

Ehya Darman Pishrafte Company has recently signed a contract with Iran Ministry of Health to produce 960 machines that takes 48 days and it has also declared readiness to make more ventilators if needed.

“The success to produce such a great number of machines has been achieved by a loan of 400 bilion Rial given by Iran National Innovation Fund” said Hamidreza Behfarmoghadam.

Ehya Darman Pishrafte assists doctors in the key areas of diagnosis and treatment for diseases. The diagnosis is first made by CT Scan to show what amount of lung volume is affected by the disease and the second phase is treatment through ventilators to improve breathing in patients. The ventilators help the patients by moving breathable air into and out of the lungs and are able to make the patients survive even if only one percent of their lung is working properly.

Ehya Darman Pishrafte is the member of Khorasan Science and Technology Park and is the first manufacturer of ventilators and anesthetic machines in Iran.

The company has started its avtivity since 2011 by making ventilator and anesthetic machines and was able to produce CT Scan machines in 2018.
