Prisma Health said Wednesday that it has developed a device that will allow one ventilator to be used on four patients suffering from the coronavirus.   Ventilators are an important part of treating people suffering with the respiratory infection. And a shortage of ventilators has been a concern of health leaders dealing with the virus.  Officials said that the device, called the VESper, or ventilation expansion splitter, has been approved by the FDA for emergency use authorization.
