Karapitiya Hospital to receive high-flow oxygen machines

Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne has instructed Health Services Director General Dr. Anil Jasinghe to provide high-flow oxygen machines to the Karapitiya Teaching Hospital very soon, Health Ministry spokesman said.

Minister Senaratne made arrangements to provide the machines as an emergency supply followed by the request made by the pediatricians of the hospital.

The machines will be purchased locally, he said.

The machines help stretch out the lungs of affected children when they were given oxygen using the machines.

Minister Senaratne requests the public to follow the medical advices on the viral flu condition spreading in the Southern Province.

The Epidemiology Unit is now conducting an investigation on the issue, he said.
