Frugal Innovation: Enabling Mechanical Ventilation During Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic in Resource-Limited Settings
Crisis Management, Pulmonary,
From Critical Care Explorations. In this commentary, the authors note that low-quality care has become a greater determinant of mortality than lack of access. To address this, they suggest a systems-wide approach to improving the quality of mechanical ventilation in resource-limited settings, which includes consideration of the interdependent ventilator design constraints such as cost and complexity, hospital infrastructure, availability of medications, and trained personnel.
