Following Apple's announcement that it is producing face shields for medical workers battling COVID-19, Tesla has unveiled its design for a ventilator built using Model 3 parts.

In a video posted to YouTube, Tesla's engineers explained how their ventilator works:

"We've been working on developing our own ventilator design, specifically one that's heavily based on Tesla car parts. We want to use parts that we know really well, we know the reliability of, and we can go really fast, and they are available in volume."

It appears as though the ventilator is made up of around twenty one Model 3 parts, five medical components, and seventeen other components. The system is powered by the Model 3 infotainment system and uses the Model 3 center display touchscreen.
