Jammed LA County hospitals get assistance with overtaxed oxygen-delivery systems – San Gabriel Valley Tribune

Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday, Jan. 4, that the state has convened an oxygen task force and devised a five-part strategy for addressing the higher-than-usual demand for oxygen and related equipment.

Among these strategies was the deployment of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers personnel to area hospitals to evaluate not only their oxygen delivery systems but their ability to add more beds in the event of an increase in patient load, said Mike Petersen, chief of public affairs for the Army Corps’ South Pacific division.
