PPE Conservation: Move Ventilator Monitors & IV Pumps

In an effort to reduce personnel exposure and personal protective equipment (PPE) use in treating COVID-19 patients, ventilator monitors and IV pumps are placed outside the isolation rooms in the critical care area to allow providers quick access to push emergent medications or manipulate ventilator settings without entering isolation. The ventilator itself stays in the room and the circuit is not lengthened, only the monitor is outside the room. Learn more by accessing this document.
