Boris Lozhkin has given over a high-end anesthesia ventilator to the Kyiv hospital
A new high-end medical equipment, which allows maintaining the respiratory function of patients of different ages, has been given over to the Kyiv Clinical Hospital No 15 by the Boris Lozhkin Charitable Foundation. Support of clinics and doctors is currently very important, stated the President of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine Boris Lozhkin.
“Unfortunately, Kyiv has become one of the largest foci for the coronavirus spread in Ukraine. Today, the number of the coronavirus cases in the capital has crossed the 1,000 mark. Experience of other countries shows that the level of hospital equipment availability during the coronavirus epidemic has a decisive influence on the effectiveness of medical care. Therefore, the support of clinics and doctors is so important. Absolutely any. Especially in Ukraine, where the state of the healthcare system is far from ideal,” Boris Lozhkin comments on Facebook.
To support the Kyivans and Vitali Klitschko’s team, the Charitable Foundation has purchased and donated to the hospital a high-end WATO EX-20 Anesthesia Ventilator, which will allow the doctors to provide effective medical care to patients in the moderate and severe stages of the disease.
It is worth noting that this equipment uses the latest architecture for anesthesia supervision, with an intelligent accounting system for the required volume of air. WATO EX-20 allows maintaining the respiratory function of patients of different ages, including children.
“This flexibility is of great importance, as in case of peak loads on the intensive care units, the device can be used for any patients who are in critical condition,” specified Lozhkin.
A significant superiority of this equipment is also its ease of use, so the hospital doctors will be able to learn to operate it in the shortest possible time.
Let us recall, that Boris Lozhkin and Nadiia Shalomova have earlier handed over protective overalls, next generation respirators, goggles and disposable gloves for protection against coronavirus to the Prof. O.S.Kolomiychenko Institute of Otolaryngology by the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine.
