Adam Schlifke, MD, MBA, practicing anesthesiologist and Clinical Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Stanford Medicine, has created a process for quickly and effectively converting the nearly 100,000 anesthesia machines in surgery suites across the country for use as ventilators in the event that the United States is unable to meet demand for this life-sustaining tool. With the suspension of elective surgeries in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the US could potentially increase its ventilator supply by another 66% if COVIDvent’s process is applied.
