“Medical technology plays a critical role in protecting the public health at various stages during an epidemic:

* Diagnostics to rapidly screen individual patients for influenza virus in hospitals, clinics and doctors’ offices;

* Personal protection devices such as facemasks to help stop the spread of disease;

* Delivery technologies to quickly and efficiently administer vaccines or drugs; and

* Life-sustaining equipment such as ventilators to help patients recover their normal breathing functions.

The medical technology industry stands ready to provide whatever assistance is needed to help prevent or contain the health threat posed by the current strain of swine flu and to help those already infected to recover fully and quickly.” – Janet Trunzo, Advanced Medical Technology Association
