SRM Hospital receives 10 oxygen concentrators from NTHU, Taiwan


SRM Medical College Hospital and Research Centre (SRM MCH&RC) in Kattankulathur has received ten oxygen concentrators from National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Taiwan as a sign of goodwill to help us battle COVID.

These 10 Oxygen Concentrators were sent as part of the “Love from NTHU, Taiwan” campaign. The money was sourced from voluntary donations from the NTHU Alumni Association and the Centre for India Studies at NTHU. SRM Institute of Science and Technology (SRMIST) is one of the strategic partners of NTHU, through which a dedicated Taiwan Education Centre has been established on campus, working to build the education and cultural partnership between the university and Taiwan higher education institutions.

On behalf of NTHU, SRMIST’s Director (International Relations) Kartar Singh presented these concentrators to SRM MCH&RC’s Pro-Vice Chancellor (Medical & Health Sciences) Prof. Lt. Col. Dr. A. Ravikumar and Dean (Medical) Dr. A. Sundaram.

In the words of Professor Weichung Wang, Director of the Program Office for Taiwan Education Centre in India at NTHU, who has devoted over a decade in promoting Indo-Taiwan cooperation, the donation was an outpouring of the concern they feel for the people of India, “SRMIST is one of the most important partners of NTHU in India. Given the years-long partnership and friendship, it was but natural for us to provide this support. It is a very small step in strengthening the hands of SRM Hospital in its fight against the deadly COVID virus”.

SRMIST has around 20 academic partnerships with Taiwan, leading to student and faculty mobility, and research collaboration. The Taiwan Education Centre at SRMIST is the only centre in India to offer the Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language certificate examination.

As per the Govt. guidelines and AIIMS, Delhi guidelines, only patients with moderately severe disease are admitted to the hospital. However, a large number of COVID patients are having mild symptoms or remain asymptomatic. They need assisted care for up to a week under supervised Medical and Nursing professionals. SRM MCH&RC receives 150 to 170 patients daily in the Fever Clinic. Out of this, about 30 get admitted to the hospital. Of the remaining patients with mild symptoms some held rest and special care due to the extreme malaise isolated with the disease.

An energetic team of Doctors, Nursing staff and Support staff will be managing these patients with expert guidance of specialist doctors in SRM Medical College Hospital and Research Centre.

The remaining 100 beds will be used for treating patients by Ayurveda system of Medicine. For this purpose, we have established an Ayurveda COVID Care Centre jointly with Lions Club of T.Nagar Charitable Trust. This trust has been operating an Ayurveda Hospital for more than 23 years in K.K. Nagar. They will treat COVID patients who are asymptomatic or with mild symptoms according to guidelines of Ministry of AYUSH, Govt. of India and Govt. of Tamil Nadu.
