HOW LONG BEFORE JOE BITE-ME CHANGES “LEARN TO CODE” TO “LEARN TO RUN VENTILATORS?

New York is going to have a problem finding skilled workers to run ventilators.

The rest of the health care industry better get its shit together quick on this.

NY Governor Andrew Cuomo has asked for 30,000 ventilators to deal with crisis Coronavirus, which causes respiratory difficulties, increased demand for the kit But medical experts say there aren’t enough medics qualified to operate them As it stands there are 7,713 respiratory specialists licensed in NY for ventilators Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should you see a doctor?

Even if New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gets the 30,000 ventilators he has asked for, finding enough skilled workers to operate them all is the real challenge, medical experts say.

Coronavirus, which causes respiratory complications, has placed a colossal strain on New York hospitals with more than 59,000 cases, including 965 deaths, and increased demand for ventilators.

However, despite Cuomo saying that the machines are ‘what missiles were to WWII’ there are 7,713 respiratory specialists in his state licensed to operate ventilators.

Anthony Everidge, a member of the American Association of Respiratory Care, told the New York Post: ‘I read that Gov. Cuomo said that ventilators are to coronavirus what missiles were to WWII. While I am sure this is true, you would not have grabbed a front-line soldier off the battlefield, put him in the fighter cockpit and expect him to fly the plane, launch the missiles and defeat the enemy.

    Not having seen a medical ventilator, I’m wondering just how much intelligence it takes to run one? Really. A simple 5-10 minutes (ok, maybe 1/2 hour max) instructions on the functions of the knobs and buttons should allow anyone with more than one brain cell to rub together to follow a Doctor’s Rx instructions.

    But what do I know? I’m just an electronics technician with a 2 year AAS, also an amateur radio operator.
