Strategic National Stockpile Ventilator Training Program
Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

Pandemic events present multiple challenges to the health care environment and the ability of the respiratory therapist to provide mechanical ventilation to all persons in need.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) is a repository of ventilators that would be used to supplement the supply currently in use by the nation’s acute care facilities. These ventilators can be requested and allocated to areas of need in the event of a pandemic.
