U.S. hospitals do not have enough ventilators to meet the spike in cases of respiratory failure that the novel coronavirus is projected to create.

We need to remove those barriers now.
Join us in calling on manufacturers to release the vital service information hospitals need to service and maintain all viable ventilators in the United States.
