Powell, T., Christ, K.C., and Birkhead, G.S. (2008). Allocation of Ventilators in a Public Health Disaster. (Abstract only.) Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 2(01): 20-26.
This paper details one of the first efforts intended to identify a statewide approach to allocating mechanical ventilators in the setting of a large-scale respiratory emergency event. The authors highlight the ethical principles that govern such decision making, with an emphasis on the “duty to plan,” the “duty to care,” and the “duty to steward resources.”
