Udhampur: In a major initiative by the Central government, 35 ‘Made in India’ ventilators were provided to the District Hospital Udhampur, under the Prime Minister’s Citizens Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situation (PM CARES) fund.
The hospital superintendent thanked Centre for providing ventilators to district hospitals.
“Earlier ICUs with ventilators were available only in medical colleges. We use to refer to patients to other hospitals who have ventilators. When numbers started increasing, we faced difficulty when we had severely ill patients who need ventilator support. Now we can save them even here,” Dr Vijay Raina, Medical Superintendent of the District Hospital added.
