    Hello fellow HTM's,

    COVID-19 question. How are HTM's around the country handling the maint and service on ventilators and anesthesia units when used on a Covid-19 positive patient? We are in Northern Michigan and have not had a positive case yet at our facility. Our Biomed department is trying to be proactive and being prepared for the onslaught that most likely is coming in the next week or two. Any input will be welcomed.
