Local Colorado Glass Blower Creates Ventilator Splitters For Hospitals

“People are not taking this seriously enough”

People across the country and in Colorado are burning the midnight oil by coming up with creative ways to help solve the country’s ventilator shortage.

It’s a problem being felt by hospitals across the United States.

McMenamin is a glass blowing artist from Boulder.

“There are people doing this all over the world,” McMenamin said.
