As COVID-19 ravages the world, hospitals are running out of ventilators to keep people alive. Where there are enough machines to go around, there may not be enough clinicians who know how to use them.
Our goal is to train 1 million medical professionals to confidently use ventilators in an ICU so they can save lives—possibly yours. This is where the toughest battles against COVID-19 are being fought.
Freeventilatortraining.org is a series of online courses on how to use a ventilator (powered by Medmastery). In under 24 hours, these courses take medical professionals, unfamiliar with the ICU environment, and cross train them to save a life with a ventilator. These courses are free and can be completed from home on any device.
Help us spread this 1 million ventilators challenge to as many doctors and nurses as possible! We’ve already taught hundreds of thousands of clinicians around the world (about us). We are now dedicated to training 1 million more.
Clinicians, to learn how to use a ventilator:

The world is in crisis and we realize that the global shortage of staff trained to use ventilators is a problem we know how to solve. We have already trained hundreds of thousands of medical professionals across all areas of medicine (emergency medicine, cardiac care, ICU, infectious diseases, etc.).
We want to help with the global COVID-19 response by cross-training medical professionals in this critical area.
We estimate that the world needs at least 1 million more medical professionals to know how to use a ventilator this year. Millions of patients will need a ventilator and thousands of ICU staff will get sick.
We’re extremely passionate about taking the lead to solve that aspect of the COVID-19 problem.
