Mumbai: KEM patients gasp for air with 39 non-functional ventilators
| Saturday | 21st September, 2019
Many times availability of a ventilator support system in major public hospitals is more than impossible.
Response to RTI plea filed by activist Chetan Kothari revealed that out of the 32 non-functional ventilators, five are for the emergency medical service ward.
All five ventilators were reported to be non-functional between January to June this year due to non-functional flow sensor.
They have a lot of patients waiting to get a bed with ventilator support.
According to the response given by hospital authority to the RTI, they are in the process to start the non-functional ventilators soon.
