Ralph Garcia: Up until now, all the results both from simulators and in live animals have been positive (01:07-01:13).3.) Andrés Rodríguez: The pig allows us, due to its similarity to our respiratory system, to pass this information to human patients. The pig does not suffer from physical involvement since it is anesthetized. We are monitoring the parameters of blood pressure, oxygenation and carbon dioxide to see that the patient is in normal physiological parameters. (01:31-01:59).
