It seems to me that this would be an excellent (inexpensive) alternative. Like Pete said, BVM really work well and are plentiful in hospitals.

It won't have the sensor systems that "proper" ventilators will have, but it seems workable (enough) with a little bit of setup for the individual patient to ensure you're getting the proper chest rise. It would be cheap, easy to build, and about a gazillion times better than being able to provide nothing for the patient.
