World Health Organization gave ‘oxygen concentrator’ to India

Recently the World Health Organization (WHO) has announced 4,000 ‘oxygen concentrator’ to India due to increase in cases of corona virus infection and lack of oxygen.

Key Facts:

  • The ‘oxygen concentrator’ is an oxygen-producing medical device; it collects oxygen from the air in our environment.
  • It may be noted that about 78 percent of atmospheric gases are nitrogen and 21 percent oxygen and the remaining 1 percent is from other gases.
  • The ‘oxygen concentrator’ takes air from the atmosphere and filters it, releasing nitrogen back into the atmosphere to get pure oxygen.
  • Oxygen obtained from the oxygen concentrator is 90-95 percent pure. However, the oxygen obtained from it is not completely pure, and it does not work in patients with extremely low oxygen saturation.
  • But according to experts, it is sufficient for less infected COVID -19 patients with an oxygen saturation level of 85% or more.
  • The pressure valve located in the ‘oxygen concentrator’ helps regulate the oxygen supply by stabilizing it to 1-10 liters per minute.
  • The ‘oxygen concentrator’ can be operated continuously and can release oxygen around the clock for about 5 years or longer.
