ECMO support will relieve him of the ventilator and give his lungs a chance to heal, automatically in few days. In case of no improvement, lung transplant is the only option available for his survival.
Since, there are no ECMO treatment (expect SUM hospital where all machines are occupied) and lungs transplant facilities available in Odisha; and after doctors’ consultation/advice he is getting airlifted to SIMS hospital, Chennai(https://simshospitals.com/) on 7th Jun, 2020.
Cost of Air Ambulance: 27 Lakhs
Estimated Cost of treatment (Minimum): Rs 1.2 Crores and upwards
Estimated duration of treatment: Do not know
Arun’s family is trying their best to arrange the money but I humbly request your upfront kind co-operation and donation to meet his Air ambulance and medical treatments at Chennai and help our friend live long.
Thanks in advance and stay safe,
