MIT open sources cheap ventilator design

MIT has developed a low-cost ventilator and is releasing the design to the open source community. Ventilators can otherwise come with price tags of up to $30,000 each in the US. The E-Vent (’emergency ventilator’) is a resurrection of a 2010 project that outlined a simple, portable ventilator for only $100. A prototype has been created and may soon head to the FDA for approval.

Will the medical establishment that charges $50,000 allow this? The expensive ones probably use Chinese parts and have big mark-up anyways.
