Launching ceremony for med student’s MCPR machine

Every grey cloud has a silver line and Dilshan Abeywardana's new production is an excellent example for this amidst the darkness of COVID-19, Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said.

Addressing the launching ceremony of the new Mechanical Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (MCPR) machine produced by Dilshan Abeywardana, a final-year medical student from the Colombo Medical Faculty, Minister Rambukwella said that Sri Lanka has produced a team that could win competing with the world.

Minister Rambukwella said there is no shortage of talent in Sri Lanka, and that the due place will be given to such talented individuals although, unfortunately, it did not happen in the past, he added.

Dilshan’s creation is only the start; it will give a message to hundreds of other talented students.

Dilshan said he made the MCPR machine at a cost of around Rs.300,000, but that it would cost nearly Rs.4 million if it were if it were imported. The cost of an imported MCPR machine is over Rs.2.5 million, he added.
