Glass Artisan creates glass ventilator splitters

More and more cases around the world pile up as we continue to fight the battle against Coronavirus. The medical field needs help more than ever.

It’s being called “Project Wishbone”. Colorado based glass blower, Joshua McMenamin, has created a splitter that can be used to join ventilators together. “My scientific glass background allowed me to create a piece of glass tubing to join the ventilators to more than one patient,” McMenamin states. He uses non-porous borosilicate glass opposed to plastic, which is much more durable.
