Figure 3. Optimal ventilator stockpiles for moderate and severe pandemic scenarios, Texas, USA. The total size of the required stockpile, summed across the central and 8 HSR stockpiles, decreases as risk tolerance (EUD) increases, for both moderate (A) and severe (C) pandemic scenarios. For an EUD of 5 patients (red circles), total stockpiles would be 1,172 (A) and 15,697 (C); optimal allocations to central and regional stockpiles are shown for moderate (B) and severe (D) scenarios. EUD, expected unmet demand; PUD, probability of unmet demand; HSR, health service region.
