Ahmedabad: In a record time of just one month, the Institute of Kidney Diseases and Research Centre (IKDRC) has commissioned a fully automated liquid oxygen tank in its premises.
Dr Vineet Mishra, Director IKDRC-ITS released the uninterrupted oxygen supply in institute’s wards by turning valve of 10,000 litres capacity tank on Sunday.
“We have augmented oxygen requirement in our wards to serve our patients better especially after demand increased due to admission of Covid-19 infected patients,” said Dr Mishra in a statement released on Sunday.
The institute till now banked upon cylinder deliveries for oxygen requirement but installation of a tank would ensure a hassle free supply.
“Commissioning of liquid oxygen tank in our premises would help us save on recurring costs and plug supply issues,” added Dr Mishra.
In the aftermath of Covid-19 pandemic, IKDRC began admitting corona virus infected patients from last month which increased the demand for oxygen supply.
