Naval Dockyard Vizag develops Multi-feed Oxygen Manifold

With the number of coronavirus cases growing by the day across the country, the Central Government is making efforts to produce better healthcare facilities. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has already stepped into style ventilators and oxygen canisters. Extending their support, employees at the Naval Dockyard, in Visakhapatnam, have developed an innovative portable Multi-feed Oxygen Manifold (MOM).

A conventional oxygen cylinder feeds only 1 patient through the Ventimask arrangement. However, an outsized number of patients might require oxygen support, especially during the continuing coronavirus outbreak. to deal with this example, the portable MOM has been designed, which enables six patients to receive oxygen from one oxygen cylinder simultaneously.

The preliminary trials of the complete founded were conducted at the Naval Dockyard. Taking to Twitter, the Indian Navy shared that the portable MOM was assembled within thirty minutes during rapid trials at the Indian Naval ship (INHS) Kalyani. After obtaining successful results, the Naval Dockyard, in Visakhapatnam has commenced the manufacture of ten portable MOM with two 6-way radial headers. The Indian Navy further stated that these apparatus would cater to 120 patients, at makeshift locations, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
