Fighting COVID-19: Engineers Answer the Call (.PDF Download)

April 19, 2020

Engineers like to be involved. Even when up to our collective clavicles in code, we’re most comfortable when we can provide input on a project through all stages: from the initial concept; through the design and development stage; on to the testing of prototypes; and finally following the project right up to final manufacturing. These attributes mean engineers are well-suited to act with speed and create the critical equipment that hospitals need to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the rise of COVID-19 cases throughout the United States, one of the biggest concerns is the shortage of ventilators for patients. The mechanical ventilators used in critical-care settings are complex, microprocessor‐driven devices designed to support a wide range of medical conditions. And they’re costly, so large‐scale stockpiling of such devices has proven to be financially impractical.
