The COVID-19 pandemic challenged the healthcare infrastructure in our country. Chennai, the city that tops in medical care with reasonably good infrastructure was deeply impacted by the pandemic. The strain on the system led to challenges, and hospitals were striving hard to ramp up their infrastructure to meet the high demand for quality treatments. Thryve Digital being sensitive to healthcare related causes, noted that the many corporations were supporting causes like oxygen concentrators, bed supply, etc., but there was a gap in sponsors for the high-value ventilators that can be used on a variety of patients from neonatal to geriatric adults who needed immediate COVID-19 treatment.
In pursuit, Voluntary Health Services (VHS) Chennai, a trust-based multispecialty hospital providing affordable health care to the community, was doing yeomen service during the pandemic and was quickly ramping up beds in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) facilities with donations from well-wishers. VHS, in their ramp-up found a need to fund the high-quality ventilators and thus Thryve Digital volunteered to procure 5 state-of-the-art MAQUET SERVO-air High-Performance Ventilators valued at over INR 75 Lakhs. These can handle the most acute phases of respiratory distress, through recovery, and to the waning phases of the ventilation process.
