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%.
