The COVID-19 global pandemic has placed an unprecedented strain upon global medical resources, resulting in shortages of both, everyday disposable medical items, and specialized devices and materials that are often crucial to patient survival. In this work, we discuss the most acute needs faced by the Intensive Care Unit physicians in Canada and the mitigation steps our group undertook to address these needs. We provide several practical examples of devices developed and manufactured within our group and discuss some of the associated implementation challenges.
