As per details, portable ventilator SafeVent SP 100 is FDA/CE approved economical and reliable ventilator. The National Radio and Telecommunication Corporation (NRTC) has already produced 15 units of SafeVent SP 100 and has a production capacity to manufacture 250 –300 units per month.

NRTC has become the first organization in Pakistan which has indigenously developed and started local manufacturing of “SafeVent SP100”.
