Doctors have made four-way and now nine-way valve system to enable one ventilator to service 9 people. Elon Musk and others are working to help them get each with individual valve controls per patient to personalize care & avoid cross-flow risk.
So in ten minutes the evil genius who is one of our GP anaesthetists (with a PhD in diaphragmatic mechanics) increased our rural hospitals ventilator capacity from one to nine!!! pic.twitter.com/yNmuCCDbWd

Build one large central ventilator , multiple branches/lines with one ways values/regulators to regulate pressure and prevent mixing.

A single computer, pump & pressure accumulator would be fine for many patients, but ideally individual valves per patient to personalize care & avoid cross-flow risk

cross flow risk looks important:

Would an adjustable orifice on each output of the ventilator suffice to take care of individual needs? May even add a carbon filter to reduce the cross-flow risk? Gotta keep a consistent length of tubing cause gas laws.
