Ruben Medical clinic got a new oxygen concentrator through SV Trade limited –Finland. Sebastian Vaajakari a senior officer of the company presented the equipment to our clinic Coordinator -Sarah and Clinical Officer Edwin. The machine will have immense benefits in the clinic because of its pivotal role of supplementing oxygen to patients with lung conditions or experiencing breathing problems or If the oxygen level of a patient is below a critical level at rest. The need for oxygen is found by measuring the amount of oxygen in the blood stream. This machine will be able to provide the much needed oxygen and allow their bodies get the oxygen they need to help them be more active.

A concentrator draws in air from the room/environment (which contains 21% oxygen) and passes the air through a special filter collecting only the oxygen into a reservoir. When the machine is turned on, this process of collection takes place. The reservoir and the concentrator have limited storage, so virtually all the oxygen saved is released into the oxygen tubing for delivery to the patient. The concentration of oxygen delivered by a concentrator is 90-95%.

FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF FRANCIS GERARD O'SHEA

50 years on

Don’t worry tomorrow will take care of itself, a line from the gospel I quoted in the last article and perhaps a fitting epitaph for Francis Gerard O’Shea. He left this world laughing fifty years ago today. I was in Form three at CBC Warrnambool and he was teaching Grade six and among his students was my little brother Pat.We got the news around 8.30am on a Saturday morning June 29th 1968 as we were preparing to go into Warrnambool for the usual Saturday morning games of football.
