Critical Commentary

With at-home medical equipment, people with chronic illnesses can have a degree of autonomy. However, outages threaten not only their autonomy but their life. Losing access to an oxygen pump, a ventilator, or sleep apnoea machines can mean they are at risk of death. Outages are partially attributable to aged grids and partially attributable to the negative effects of climate change.
