Hello everyone especially anaesthetic machine experts, as the crisis continues would you be able to share tips and information on the possibilities of using your anaesthetic machine to ventilate are and support a Covid-19 patient when no ventilators available and the option of using an anaesthetic machine as a last resort?

Just in case it useful to anyone, the video is Dr. Stephen Sheppherd (Consultant, Intensive Care and Anaesthetics, St. Bartholomew's Hospital London).

Describes using an anaesthetic machine (with ventilator) an an 'ICU ventilator'. It is a Penlon Prima 465 but principles would surely apply to many brands.

Anaesthesia ventilators have been installed in large numbers at NHS Nightingale London & London region hospitals to ventilate COVID-19 patients.

It was good to see a medical device company in Galway has designed a new system to enable two patients to be treated safely from one ventilator.....
