CSL helped Kerala govt hospitals in setting up Centralised Oxygen Distribution Facilities

 

Kerala: In the wake of the ongoing pandemic situation and rising demand for medical care, Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) has helped set up Centralised Oxygen Distribution Facilities at five Government Hospitals in Kerala. Government Hospitals in the Ernakulum district were chosen for the project.

The system facilitates direct delivery of pressurized oxygen through wall-mounted outlets close to the patient’s bed.  Installation of this system has been completed in the Govt. Taluk Hospitals at Fort Kochi, Palluruthy and Thripunithura, District Hospital Aluva and the General Hospital, Muvattupuzha. This will be of help in combating the Covid cases.

"CSL felt it essential to support the augmentation of facilities to provide oxygen support at hospitals in the current scenario. We are committed to supporting the cause and we surely hope that this will come in handy during emergency situations" said Shri Madhu S Nair, Chairman and Managing Director, CSL.

CSL implemented the project under its Corporate Social Responsibility Scheme (CSR). The project was implemented through the National Health Mission. An amount of Rs 50 lakh was earmarked & allocated by CSL for this venture.

Medical Oxygen is critical in Covid-19 treatment. Most of the hospitals are facing a sudden spurt in demand for piped oxygen supply forcing hospital administrations to make arrangements by which Oxygen from cylinders connected to a cylinder bank located in the hospital basement or suitable place is piped to the patient's bed through copper piping.
