This paper describes the development of portable mechanical ventilator using a proportional solenoid valve whose aim is to regulate the flow rate of oxygen to the patient together with an Arduino Mega2560 as the main controller for the machine before delivering the required volume to the patient; base on their ideal body weight so as to prevent blowing out the lungs The aimed of this development is to save and improve the quality of lives of patients with respiratory problems rather than replacing the existing ventilator. Furthermore, test analysis was conducted to evaluate its performance and also the comparative analysis between the standard and the developed ventilator showed the reasons why most hospitals don’t have ventilators.
