Supply Five Nos. of Non-invasive Portable Ventilators For Respiratory Care Unit at District General Hospital Ampara - Sri Lanka

This project proposal is submitted to acquire five nos. of Non-Invasive Portable Ventilators for respiratory care center at District General Hospital Ampara (GH Ampara) which is the immediate need for routing respiratory care of the hospital as well as for facing the COVID-19 global emergency. The second wave of COVID19 has been attacked the country and it is worse than the first wave. By implanting this project, COVID-19 related respiratory care and other routing respiratory emergency management of the hospital can be improved and in turn, many lives can be saved and transfers of patients to other hospitals where ICU respiratory care facilities are available will be minimized. Also this project helps to reduce the rush in ICUs and improves the respiratory therapy in wards of routine medical and surgical conditions without even considering the COVID-19 is present or not. The estimated budget for this project is US$35,500.00 and also the project will be completed one week after receive the sufficient funds. This project will be a massive project by the Rotarians and this will be making a remarkable identity to Rotary.
