COVID-19 Special Initiative:
Ventilator Initiative Task Force
A critical shortage of mechanical ventilators is anticipated in many countries, including the United States, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent FDA guidance provides for the use existing hospital BiPAP (bi-level positive airway pressure) machines on an emergency basis to spare mechanical ventilation if necessary. Syneos Health has launched the Ventilator Initiative Task Force as a platform for mobilizing awareness and action, and to support healthcare professionals with education, training, and research.
