New York State Department of Health and New York State Task Force on Life and the Law Update Ventilator Allocation Guidelines
The guidelines provide direction for the distribution of ventilators in the event of a severe pandemic, when there are insufficient ventilators to treat everyone who needs them. The guidelines balance the goal of saving the most lives with important societal values, such as protecting vulnerable populations. The guidelines are non-binding and designed with sufficient flexibility to adjust to changing clinical information.
