The number of active patients in the state has crossed 12 thousand. This is increasing the pressure to treat the infected in government hospitals. The demand for oxygen beds is also increasing due to increase in patients in hospitals. The Health Department claims that sufficient quantity of oxygen is available in the state. The capacity of the oxygen bed is being increased by looking at the corona infected cases. So that patients can get oxygen when needed.

Corona infected patients are increasing in the state. Along with this, the number of active patients for treatment in hospitals is increasing. The infected are having trouble breathing. In such a situation, there is a high demand for oxygen beds. However, at present the government has arranged more than three thousand oxygen-rich beds in government and private hospitals. For the treatment of the infected, five hundred oxygen beds are being increased in four districts Dehradun, Udham Singh Nagar, Haldwani and Haridwar. The patient is admitted in hospitals in these districts.
Secretary Health Amit Singh Negi says that there is adequate system for treatment of State Corona patients. There is no lack of oxygen. In view of infected cases, additional oxygen beds are being arranged in the state.

Currently this is the arrangement:

There are 481 ICU beds, 543 ventilators, 1846 oxygen support beds, 30500 isolation beds in the state government hospitals. Together with government and private hospitals, more than three thousand oxygen beds are currently available in the state. There are 418 Covid Care Centers for Corona patients.


Adequate oxygen supply in Haridwar hospitals, no problem:

In the Corona period, oxygen consumption in hospitals has already increased. Due to this, there is a lack of oxygen in some places, but there is no lack of oxygen in the hospitals of Haridwar. Government hospitals also have cylinders for emergency with oxygen concentrator machines. There are 25 oxygen concentrators in the Covid Mela hospital, 15 in the district and 10 in the women’s hospital.

The rates of oxygen used to patients in hospitals have become expensive. There is talk of lack of oxygen in some areas, but there is sufficient supply of oxygen in Haridwar district. Chief Superintendent of Covid Mela Hospital, Dr. Rajesh Gupta said that about 50 oxygen concentrator machines are installed in all three hospitals.

This concentrator machine safeguards patients’ lives by preparing five liters of air per minute from the atmosphere and preparing one liter of medical oxygen. Oxygen can be given to two patients simultaneously with one machine. Their operation theater, SNCU, labor room and emergency room and wards use oxygen produced by this machine instead of cylinders. Dr. Rajesh Gupta said that 30 Jammu cylinders have been kept safe besides the concentrator.

Increased cylinder rates:

The rate of 110 cubic meter pressure oxygen cylinder was Rs 200 before the corona started. Metro Hospital CEO Sandeep Vaishnav said that the supplier has been reduced to Rs 250 as per the new rate list. Anjul Shrimali, director of Matruchhaya Medical Care, New Haridwar, said that 110 cubic meters of pressure oxygen gas cylinders are now being supplied in his hospital for Rs 400. He says that the supplier has reported lack of gas production.

Lack of oxygen in hospitals not in roorkee:
There is no ventilator system for serious patients in Roorkee Civil Hospital. While the civil hospital has the responsibility of millions of population of Roorkee and countryside area. The civil hospital receives hundreds of patients daily. Many of these patients are serious. In such a situation, serious patients have to be referred by the Civil Hospital to the Higher Center.

Whereas Vinay Vishal Nursing Home and Arogyam Hospital in Roorkee have ventilator facilities. In such a situation, serious patients are admitted in these two hospitals only. Physicians claim that oxygen is available as needed. Due to lack of ventilator in the civil hospital, people are forced to take their serious patient to private hospital or outside.

Many times the situation becomes such that serious patient dies due to lack of timely treatment. Due to lack of ventilators, Roorkee hospitals do not require much oxygen. Medical Superintendent Dr. Sanjay Kansal claims that oxygen is available as per the requirement. Dr. Vinay Gupta also claimed oxygen availability.
