Oxygen is critically required to treat patients affected with COVID, many of whom require hospitalization due to fluctuating oxygen levels. However, there is a severe shortage of oxygen availability across hospitals in India. Oxygen concentrators are alternate devices to oxygen cylinders – while cylinders contain a finite amount of oxygen supply, a concentrator recycles oxygen from the air and delivers it to the patient. They can be used to manage patient requirements without looking for external sources of oxygen.
Swasth is looking to raise Rs.1.5 Crores to procure the concentrators and deploy the same in areas of great need. The process of distribution of concentrators will be transparent and published in the public domain so every donor can see the impact he has created. The effort has already secured 10000 concentrators for immediate deployment and is currently raising funds to procure more.
Each high flow oxygen concentrator costs Rs. 85,000 and each low flow concentrator costs Rs 45,000.
- A contribution of Rs.45000 will procure one low-flow concentrator that can treat and save the lives of up to 900 patients with mild to moderate illness.
- A contribution of Rs. 85000 will procure one high-flow concentrator that can treat and save the lives of up to 550 patients with a severe or critical illness.
