Steven St. Armour told 11 News he got this idea in the middle of the night. He was able to find plans for masks online, but he had one big problem -- he only had one printer.

"My daughter at dinner said, ‘Well geez, I know where we could get a lot more,’" said St. Armour.
Armour contacted his daughter's high school, St. Mary's High School and they loaned him five printers.

Each machine can make two masks in 10 hours.

The library system has seven 3D printers.
CCPL’s printers start at around 5 a.m. when Bob Kuntz, director of Operations and Innovation, comes in to get them running. It takes about 2.5 hours to print the more complicated top band, and they can print the bottom reinforcement piece four at a time.
The printers can’t make the clear plastic sheeting or the elastic band that goes on the back of the face mask, and there is worry the plastic sheeting is becoming hard to source.

“I think the thing that’s really cool is how the maker community could really rapidly prototype and stand up to fill in until mass manufacture could happen," she said.

and now let's really gget crazy scared, out of out minds scared.

A prestigious scientific panel told the White House Wednesday night that research shows coronavirus can be spread not just by sneezes or coughs, but also just by talking, or possibly even just breathing.
"While the current [coronavirus] specific research is limited, the results of available studies are consistent with aerosolization of virus from normal breathing," according to the letter, written by Dr. Harvey Fineberg, chairman of a committee with the National Academy of Sciences.
Fineberg told CNN that he will wear start wearing a mask when he goes to the grocery store.

An ABC News investigation offers sobering insight into how COVID-19 has spread and penetrated so broadly, so deeply and so quickly in the United States. It also helps explain why Americans, no matter where they live, must continue to heed the warnings of health officials to self distance and why the virus likely was here far earlier than first realized.

Travel data of passengers arriving in the United States from China during the critical period in December, January and February, when the disease took hold in that country, shows a stunning 759,493 people entered the U.S.

NIOSH-certified N95 respirators that have not been cleared by the FDA can be used for respiratory protection to reduce the exposures of healthcare personnel in a patient setting to hazardous particulates. These respirators have not been evaluated by FDA to determine whether they meet the fluid and flammability resistance as required for FDA clearance as medical devices. For this reason, they are not intended for use in exposure settings where the performance of a surgical mask to maintain a sterile field is required.

N95 respirators that are both certified by NIOSH and cleared by the FDA as medical devices for use by healthcare personnel are called “surgical N95 respirators.” As with all NIOSH-certified N95 respirators, these products have been evaluated by the NIOSH certification process and have demonstrated that they can filter out a minimum of 95% of airborne particles under worst case test conditions. These products have also been evaluated by the FDA to have demonstrated an acceptable level of fluid and flame resistance, which may be important in healthcare occupational settings, such as surgical suites. The FDA clearance process also requires that these products have labeling that is relevant to healthcare personnel, such as information about the presence of natural rubber latex.

From what I've seen, doctors do not like to leave patients connected to a ventilator. It not only ties up an expensive piece of equipment, but the patient starts to become dependent on the ventilator. The longer a patient is hooked up, the less that they'll be able to breathe on their own.

So doctors do everything they can to quickly "wean" the patient off the temporarily stopping it for a few seconds or a few minutes or a few hours at a time, and watching the vital signs like blood pressure, blood oxygen percentage, pulse, things like that.

Nobody will be let out of the hospital immediately after being disconnected from a ventilator...they'll spend a while just lying in a bed first, to make sure that they can breathe on their own.

fwiw it not a pleasant pic-nik to be intubated to a ventillator

in fact it is a rather nasty experience, perish thoughts of just 3 days
and expect long-term side consequences, some nasty, IF u get released from ICU after 6-12 days of lying sedated on your back

Bottom Line
It is preferable to leave it to someone else
if at all possible

chinese communists now screaming that it is BS that its face masks exported to other countries were "defective" and suggestes that the nations did not "double-check" the instructions.


the communists' Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday claimed in a tweet that the "true story" behind the alleged faulty face masks imported by the Netherlands was that the Chinese manufacturer explicitly "stated clearly that they are non-surgical."

PS---the two N-95 masks that I have come in a package marked:
"for Do-It-Yourself/Homeownwr applications. Drywall Sanding. Fiberglass Insulation installation". Use only in Non-Harmful environments.
Millions of N95 masks keep surfacing. So why is there still a shortage?
Reasons vary as to why so many companies have these high-end respirators stashed away in warehouses.

These massive discoveries seem to be happening with some frequency. The most recently reported discovery happened in an Indiana warehouse, where government officials found nearly 1.5 million expired N95 masks.

the CDC reported that “certain N95 models beyond their manufacturer-designated shelf life will be protective.”

The San Francisco Chronicle explains that the issue with the expired masks isn’t the respirator itself; the elastic band that holds the mask on the wearer’s face can degrade over time, preventing a tight seal.

$1,000 fine to residents caught without a mask in Laredo, Texas

Laredo will be requiring every resident older than 5 years old to wear some sort of mask when going out in public. That includes when going to the store or even pumping gas.

This comes as the US Surgeon General changed its tone after learning there's a good amount of asymptomatic spread of the virus. They're now asking the CDC to discuss whether or not people should be wearing the masks to help prevent the spread.

about those Ventilators from his Upstate NY 'factory'

Minneapolis DRS2  13:57:41 GMT - 04/02/2020  
One of my parents spent their last days on an ICU-grade ventilator.

They are not the cheap pieces of junk that the masses have been led to believe. They are basically air pumps with sophisticated computers and sensors. Set one up the wrong way, and the patient will either not breathe any more because they are not getting enough air, or the patient's lungs will blow out because the ventilator is pumping out too much air.

$40k is cheap for what those things do.

dc CB  13:49:37 GMT - 04/02/2020  
they are doing that here too. But these are not he same as the ones that stick a tube down your throat and requie that the patient be sedated.
This is taking the basic hand pumped air bag that the EMT will use to pump air. The engineering involved is attaching a motor to do the pumping. A Michigan engineering college designed one last week that will cos about $100. These can be used at home/don't require hospitalization.

but these devices are not the $50K last resort ICU "ventilators".
