Canadian doctor turns one ventilator into nine.

Canadian Press reports that to perform the task, patients have to be paired who have similar lung size and capacity.

Then, multiple hoses are attached to the one ventilator so it is running at several times its normal power.
Is this really workable? The doctor has a PhD in respiratory mechanics so he probably knows what he's doing.
