PM CARES Fund approves procurement of 1.5 lakh Oxycare systems developed by DRDO
The PM CARES Fund has approved procurement of 1,50,000 units of Oxycare System developed by the Defence Research Development Organisation at a cost of Rs 322.5 crores, the DRDO said on Wednesday.
DRDO also said that the Oxycare System is an SpO2-based Oxygen Supply System, that regulates oxygen being administered to patients based on sensed SpO2 levels.
"Under this sanction, 1,00,000 manual and 50,000 automatic Oxycare systems along with NRBM (Non-rebreather mask) masks are being procured. The Oxycare system delivers supplemental oxygen based on the SpO2 levels and prevents the person from sinking into a state of Hypoxia, which can be fatal," it added.
The system was developed by the Defence Bio-Engineering and Electro Medical Laboratory (DEBEL) in Bengaluru of the DRDO for soldiers posted at extreme high-altitude areas.
The system is indigenously developed for operation in field conditions and is robust, DRDO added.
