The oxygen supply system at Bhopal Memorial Hospital and Research Center (BMHRC) has been further strengthened. To get the oxygen at proper pressure, a pressure regulatory system (PRS) has been installed near the oxygen storage tank located in the hospital premises.
Dr. Manisha Shrivastava, Director-in-charge, BMHRC on Thursday, dedicated it to the patients. Also, Oxygen supply will be made available on all 350 beds in the hospital.Dr. Manisha Shrivastava said that during the Covid-19 period, in many hospitals, the number of patients requiring oxygen had increased significantly. During this period, the problem emerged in many hospitals that despite adequate quantity of oxygen being available, it was not reaching the patients at proper pressure. This caused a lot of problems to the patients.
However, there was no such problem due to the alternative system in BMHRC. PRS system was introduced to maintain proper pressure. Now it has been installed with the oxygen storage system of BMHRC. There will be two regulators in the system. If one regulator stops working, the other will automatically start working.
Dr Anurag Yadav, Medical Superintendent (in-charge), BMHRC said that oxygen supply is available on more than 250 beds of the hospital, and soon it will be made available on all 350 beds.Dr Gaurav Acharya, in-charge, Department of Manifold said that the capacity of oxygen storage tank of BMHRC is 10 kilo litres.
Even if, in future, number of beds increases, there will never be any shortage of oxygen and oxygen pressure for the patients.
