Since December 2019, the world population has experienced one of the worst widespread lung disease pandemics of this century. Due to its high human-to-human transmission rate and lack of known medication and vaccination, COVID-19 caught most medical and pharmaceutical experts by surprise. The nature and the known effects of the novel SARS-CoV-19 virus led to a significant rise in demand for ICU ventilators. Together with the Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences (German: Hochschule Kaiserslautern, abbrev. HS KL), we present and provide a walkthrough across the safety engineering lifecycle for a proprietary ventilator, the latter being developed courtesy of our HS KL colleagues. The IEC 61508 Safety Engineering Lifecycle is applied as a case study, using our proprietary tool safeTbox.
