Will second wave oxygen concentrators come in handy in the third wave of Corona as well? Know Expert’s Opinion

New Delhi. Questions are now being raised about the oxygen concentrators that the hospitals got during the peak in the second wave of Corona. 24 hours ago, in Gangapur, Rajasthan, the wife died due to the explosion of an oxygen concentrator, while the husband is still battling for life and death in the hospital. If we talk about Delhi-NCR, then most of the oxygen concentrators found by the government hospitals here have not been opened yet. Yes, the oxygen concentrators whose packing has been opened are lying in a corner of the hospital. Medical experts say that most of the concentrators received by hospitals during the second wave of corona are of no use. Corona patients need an oxygen concentrator with a capacity of 10 LPM, but most of the oxygen concentrators given by the MLA Fund, MP Fund Fund or other items or donors to hospitals have a capacity of 5 LPM. Whereas, severely infected patients of corona require high-flow oxygen. Oxygen reaches the blood through the lungs only with a fast flow and a 5 LPM oxygen concentrator produces a low flow. Due to this oxygen does not reach the blood.

This is the condition of hospitals in Ghaziabad
If we talk about Ghaziabad, till the last week of May, the health department and its hospitals have got about 255 oxygen concentrators. Of these, about 100 concentrators are still kept in the health department stores. The Health Department says that out of these 255 oxygen concentrators, only 30 concentrators are of 10 LPM capacity. These 30 oxygen concentrators were purchased by the department itself.

What is the condition of Delhi’s government hospitals
The same is the case with many government hospitals of Delhi government. If we talk about LNJP, the biggest Kovid hospital of Delhi government, then now the oxygen plant has started here, but in this hospital too many oxygen concentrators with 5 LPM are packed like that. More or less the same is the case with all other government hospitals in Delhi.

What do experts say
Dr Amit Kumar says, ‘See, the flow of oxygen concentrator with 5 LPM is very low. It is needed only for those patients whose oxygen level is only slightly low. However, if the oxygen level falls below 88-90, the 5 LPM oxygen concentrator does not work. It is fine for normal patients but it is of no use to serious patients. However, it can also be used in the third wave if needed. Most corona patients need oxygen concentrators with a capacity of 10 LPM, but most of the oxygen concentrators given by MLA Fund, MP Fund Fund or other items or donors to hospitals have a capacity of 5 LPM. Severely infected patients of corona require high-flow oxygen. Oxygen reaches the blood through the lungs only with a fast flow and a 5 LPM oxygen concentrator produces a low flow.
