STORRS, CT (WFSB) – With the possibility of Connecticut having a shortage of ventilators, a team of scientists from the University of Connecticut is stepping up to help.
They’re working on developing a first of its kind ventilator.
When it comes to ventilators, health officials are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst.
In Connecticut and across the country, there could potentially be a shortage of life-saving ventilators.
That’s why for the last three weeks, UConn’s Center for Applied Separations Technology lab has been working on an emergency ventilator that area hospitals could use if need be.
