The author shares a provider's experience allocating an oxygen tank in the intensive care unit at a hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti after the 2010 earthquake and lists the factors that influenced her allocation decision. (It is important to note that her decisions were consistent with frameworks developed by the Institute of Medicine and others; see also Ytzhak, A., Sagi, R., Bader, T., et al.  in this topic collection).
