Abstract: The recent prevalence of respiratory failure events due to the COVID-19 pandemic highlight the urgent need for improved lung support technologies. We have developed microfluidic oxygenator prototypes over the last decade by leveraging advances in computational design, biomaterial engineering, and microfabrication techniques. Here, we present our work to develop simple, efficient, and robust extracorporeal respiratory support devices to improve patient outcomes and advance the current standard of care.
