The machine got the approval from the Ministry of Health to be circulated in mid-June.

Associate Professor, Dr. Nguyen Van Chi, who is in charge of A9 Emergency Department at Bach Mai Hospital, said the HFNC plays an important role in the COVID-19 fight, especially in treating patients in critical conditions.

Huynh Quyet Thang, HUST President, said following the development of the BKVM-HF1, the university will work to create more machines to contribute to the pandemic combat.

PetroVietnam General Services Joint Stock Corp has financed the production of the first 30 BKVM-HF1 machines in the first phase of the project, with total funding amounting to 1.5 billion VND (65,200 USD).

During the second phase, HUST and VMED Group will join hands in mass production of the HFNC.

Health Minister Nguyen Thanh Long lauded the research outcome and expressed his hope that the university and the group continue these efforts, notably in the production of SARS-CoV-2 quick test equipment./.
