Should a nurse or doctor who gets sick treating Covid-19 patients have priority access to a potentially life-saving healthcare device? Americans aren’t used to rationing in medicine, but it’s time to think about it. We consult a lung specialist, a bioethicist, and (of course) an economist.
This was a very interesting episode. That a scarce amount of ventilators has different approaches to the problem is being explained thoroughly, here.
