Lifesaving oxygen upgrade for Taveuni district hospital

October 29, 2017 12:15 am

Oxygen concentrators at the Taveuni District Hospital will soon be upgraded.

This follows after a partnership between the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, Cure Kids Fiji and Rotary this week.

Several Oxygen concentrators were installed to service the 33 bed-hospital.

Oxygen is a lifesaving treatment for many severe illnesses in children, including severe pneumonia in children and severe new-born illnesses, which are leading causes of death in Fiji.

Oxygen concentrators are small, portable machines which filter nitrogen from ambient air to supply more than 90 per cent pure oxygen.
