Just over a year ago, the AHA joined hospital and health system leaders at the White House to announce the Dynamic Ventilator Reserve, a public-private online initiative to track and help distribute available ventilators and associated supplies to areas of the country with high COVID-19 infection rates and hospitalizations. Within weeks of the announcement, the DVR had intake calls with 23 health systems, with more than 2,400 ventilators available for sharing by mid-June. The first request to borrow ventilators was made July 14, and since that time, the DVR has facilitated the successful loan of more than 100 ventilators transported across hundreds of thousands of miles. Given the drop-off in demand, the DVR is preparing to sunset. However, the AHA is in active discussion about applying lessons from the DVR to a similar initiative.
