Engineering Minute – Ventilator Shortage Causes Issues at Local Hospitals

Respirator

A Connecticut medical device manufacturer will produce ventilators for the state. Governor Ned Lamont has contracted with the company for the work. This comes as the Trump administration has turned down the state’s request for 1,500 ventilators.

Lamont visited Guilford-based ventilator manufacturer Bio-Med Devices on Sunday to commend the company for increasing production to help meet the state’s need.

“They’ve committed to 100 ventilators to the state of Connecticut. And I’m really hoping, talking to Dean, that they are going to be able to ramp up their production. They’ve been talking about as much as 500, even a thousand ventilators, if we can get the parts and if we can put together the manpower.”
