Abstract

The consumables and materials including the hospital space required for supportive therapies are in short supply with respect to COVID-19 management. To this end, an alternative supportive measure is needed for the patients to hang on, until optimal condition is made available. It is in this vein, that we describe a hand-held-respirator improvised for oxygen supplementation in a 51-yearold COVID-19 positive patient diagnosed of moderately severe disease.
