COVID-19 – Medical oxygen is an essential gas for the treatment
Medical oxygen is an essential gas for the treatment of serious coronavirus diseases. In the current critical situation, hospitals are facing an increasing number of resuscitation patients. Since the available oxygen volumes are not always sufficient, on-site medical oxygen production systems using concentrators can be deployed wherever necessary.
This equipment can take the form of:
- Oxygen hub(s) connected to a hospital oxygen network,
- Plug and play oxygen hub to supply one or more respirators
- Oxygen concentrator connected to a cylinder filling system.
The oxygen concentrator is a MD (Medical Devise) that produce an oxygen listed in the pharmacopeia.
Considering the presently critical situation, the manufacturers of oxygen concentrators member of the MEDIGHAM association are ready to lend their support to provide all hospitals that need it with the means to produce medical oxygen on site in sufficient quantity to meet the enormous needs for treatment patients against the coronavirus.
