From Predicting PPE availability , ICU Bed Availability to predicting the spread in vulnerable communities , There is need of a framework that will identify the shortcomings and create an estimation guideline and decision control toolkit for government officials and health officials and Epidemiologists and business entities.

This pandemic is likely to come back in multiple waves as people get tired of safe living measures. That said, one item that can be done today is to build ICU units that can be shipped around to hot spots and automate most of the nurse activity of a tent city of Intensive Care Units specifically built for COVID-19 in the prone position with powered elevation hardware and most importantly an "iron lung" function but made from modern aircraft composites. TriTrack Motors car body construction is similar to how a modern iron lung would be built. 3D printing would match patient geometry to iron lung outer housing and when enough inventory of real patients shapes are built custom building would slow for just outlier cases. What is proposed is a patient mounted complete automated ICU wireless and battery powered so one nurse can handle hundreds of patients instead of dealing with the mundane things like bed pans and leg squeezers etc. Also since this is a mostly unattended patient the bed surface must constantly inflate and shift to avoid bed sores. All equipment normally mounted to the wall in a regular ICU are mounted to the patient composite lung. Access doors in the chamber allow medical access. My question to the medical talent is an automated ICE iron lung valid medically? The packaging of these things into one product is the easy part for us engineers but we need input to know what we have missed at this concept stage. Thank you for your thoughtful responses. This is a last ditch solution to avoid deaths after infection. Not the ideal but would at least lower the tally of deaths.
