President of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine Boris Lozhkin and his wife Nadiia Shalomova have donated to Kyiv Clinical Hospital No 15 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 coronavirus disease.
“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,” wrote Lozhkin on Facebook.
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 equipment can be used for any patients who are in critical condition, emphasized Lozhkin.
“A significant advantage of the equipment is its ease of use. Hospital doctors will be able to learn to operate it in the shortest possible time”, wrote President of Jewish Confederation of Ukraine.
