Chen Tinghan's prize-winning project is " auto response life-sustaining ventilator in fire control "This life-sustaining ventilator is an improved version of the existing ventilator. It is better because it is thermosensitive, lighter and can cut down the inspiratory temperature with high efficiency within a short time. Due to these advantages, this product can greatly reduce the personal injury and loss of life caused by fire.
