Hospitals feel as though intubation is the best solution because non obtrusive solutions are not designed to filter the exhale to reduce the chance of infection to healthcare workers. That just means we need open source solutions for filtration. Using Vacuum and air purifier filters the viral load can be released by filtering the virus while it is still captured in droplets.
That is the first phase. Then we need options for masks to build manually controlled PAPR respirators.
Then we build a controller to allow for BIPAP ventilation.
