[PHOTOS] Oxygen Plant Installed at Iten County Referral Hospital

Delivery of health services for residents in Elgeyo Marakwet County and its environments has received a major boost after the installation of a new Oxygen Plant at the Iten County Referral Hospital (ICRH).

The plant has a capacity to fill 40 8.5m3 (cubic meters) oxygen cylinders within 24 hours.

Setting up of the plant will go a long way towards ensuring the hospital has enough supply of oxygen which will in turn boost service delivery to patients seeking emergency services.

Medical gas is required in every healthcare setting and is used for resuscitation and inhalation therapy.

Hospitals use oxygen when patients face problems in breathing air or when lungs stop inhaling oxygen such as in life support for artificially ventilated patients.
