ICARE has committed to provide the first 5 units. 20 more are needed and donations are welcome now.
Oxygen concentrators are available in 5 litres, 7 ltrs and 10 ltrs and prices start from Rs.65,000. The team behind this project intends to ask the state to suggest a good, dependable vendor to source these.
One bed would need a 5 ltr concentrator. a 10 ltr can be shared by two beds.
