Help Us Crowdsource Repair Information for Hospital Equipment!

Text:

Hi everyone! If you suddenly find yourself with a lot more time at home, and would like to put some of that time to good use helping mitigate the current health crisis, we invite you to check out the announcement here:[br]
 
 
[https://www.ifixit.com/News/36354/help-us-crowdsource-repair-information-for-hospital-equipment|Help Us Crowdsource Repair Information for Hospital Equipment][br]
 
 
We’ve already got over 100 [https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Ventilator|ventilator service manuals] posted online for free, for anyone anywhere in the world to use, ''but we need to find all of them''—and organize them and make them easier to use. And when that’s done, there are other kinds of medical equipment that desperately need the same treatment.
 
'''Current high-priority tasks:'''Update:''' Thanks so much to everyone who helped (and who continues to help)! We’ll have a public announcement about the project soon. Meanwhile, if you have any more manuals that you don’t see on [https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Medical_Device|iFixit.com], DM me or email biomed [at] iFixit [dot] com and we’ll be happy to help get them posted!

From there, we can automatically import them and make them findable on iFixit. In the above example, the file should first be placed in a '''Maquet''' folder, then placed in a '''Maquet Servo-i Ventilator''' sub-folder. (Spelling and capitalization counts, so check twice!)

Help Us Crowdsource Repair Information for Hospital Equipment!

Text:

Hi everyone! If you suddenly find yourself with a lot more time at home, and would like to put some of that time to good use helping mitigate the current health crisis, we invite you to check out the announcement here:[br]
 
 
[https://www.ifixit.com/News/36354/help-us-crowdsource-repair-information-for-hospital-equipment|Help Us Crowdsource Repair Information for Hospital Equipment][br]
 
 
We’ve already got over 100 [https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Ventilator|ventilator service manuals] posted online for free, for anyone anywhere in the world to use, ''but we need to find all of them''—and organize them and make them easier to use. And when that’s done, there are other kinds of medical equipment that desperately need the same treatment.
 
 
 
'''Current high-priority tasks:'''
 
* '''Rename PDF files''' attached to the [https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Ventilator|Ventilator device page] so they’re easier to identify and categorize (for example, “Siemens-Maquet Servo-i - Service Manual.pdf”). Log in and click the Edit button at the top right of the page for an editable list of document file names.
* '''Data entry'''—bring [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Fz8ljtGv0XK0BkNtrO94xYYQmcuUPLjP-gl5kZMwuNE/edit#gid=2050999751|this spreadsheet] up to parity with what we already have posted on the site, so we know which manuals are still missing and folks can hunt them down.
* '''Device page creation''' - Make a [https://www.ifixit.com/New|new device page] for every ventilator that has a manual posted to iFixit, and attach the manual so it’s easy to find. If you’ve never made a device page before, you can find instructions [https://www.ifixit.com/Info/Device_Page|here] and a more-complete-than-necessary example [https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Welch_Allyn_Connex_Vital_Signs_Monitor_6000|here].
