The Ventilator Project – BUCKEYE DONATION DRIVE

Our Mission: Develop a rapid and scalable solution to solve the global ventilator shortage

OSU Wrestling Staff Members Steps Up to Fight COVID Ventilator Shortages 

Ryan Mantel joined the Buckeye Community in the summer of 2018 to pursue a masters degree in Sports Management, which he completed in December 2019.

The summer of 2018 Ryan also joined The Ohio State University Wrestling program coaching staff as Deputy Director of Operations. 

However when coronavirus struck, canceling the 2020 NCAA tournament, Ryan with the support of the staff, left to volunteer for The Ventilator Project. A non-profit that was founded by his brother Tyler, with the mission to support the expected 600K unit ventilator shortage in the United States. 

His experiences at The Ohio State University have made him a valuable member of The Ventilator Project team and we have been extremely grateful for the support from the entire Buckeye Community. Go Bucks!

Come together as the Buckeye Community to save lives

Volunteer-run, donor-driven

In an effort to expedite ventilator production, come together with your local Buckeye Community to fund one of the FIRST 100 ventilators manufactured. 

The D.C. and Baltimore OSU Alumni Chapters are raising money to donate two AIRA ventilator devices. Donated ventilators will include a named plaque, as well as the special edition red banner. 

These donated ventilators will be hand-delivered to the US hospitals most in need, in an effort to save lives during this time of crisis.

AIRA: Ventilator Overview


Easy to Use

AIRA is designed to handle the needs of patients with acute respiratory issues. AIRA offers a sleek look and a modern solution with an LCD user interface for a seamless user experience.


Innovative Supply Chain

AIRA doesn’t rely on the overwhelmed medical supply chain. Designed to manufacture, Aira can be rapidly produced in high quantity.


Simple Integration

A simple & intuitive ventilator that eliminates the need for robust onboarding training. AIRA can be integrated almost instantly into operation.

Ventilator Modes

Pressure control (PCV) 

Allows the practitioner to control ventilatory pressure throughout the cycle in order to generate the pressure necessary to expand the collapsed alveoli.


Volume control 

Defines the volume administered to the patient (tidal volume Vt as the control variable). Airway pressure results from the compliance of the lungs and the inhaled volume.


Pressure Support (PSV)

A flow-cycled modality in which, as in A/C ventilation, every breath is assisted and the positive pressure is automatically terminated at the end of inspiration.
