Help Us Crowdsource Repair Information for Hospital Equipment!
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:
Help Us Crowdsource Repair Information for Hospital Equipment
We’ve already got over 100 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.
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 iFixit.com, DM me or email biomed [at] iFixit [dot] com and we’ll be happy to help get them posted!
Stay safe everybody!
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
Do we know if there are some that are higher priority than others?
We added some high-priority tasks to the post above^^ :)

I am based in NYC. I can and will help search, but more importantly, I have tools and am skilled at mechanical and electronic repair. Can iFixit help connect hospitals with skilled repair volunteers like me? firstname.lastname@example.org
