AFMS to Import Oxygen

Armed Forces Medical Services to import oxygen generation plants and containers from Germany

Armed Forces Medical Services, AFMS has decided to import oxygen generation plants and containers from Germany, amid shortage of oxygen in the hospitals during the second wave of Covid-19. In a statement, Defence Ministry said that 23 mobile oxygen generation plants are being airlifted from Germany which will be deployed in AFMS hospitals catering to COVID patients. These oxygen generating plants are expected to arrive in India within a week. Each plant has a capacity to produce 40 litres of oxygen per minute and two thousand 400 litres an hour. At this rate, it can cater to 20 to 25 patients round the clock. The advantage of these plants is that they are easily portable.

In another important decision, Ministry of Defence is also giving extension to Short Service Commissioned Doctors in AFMS till 31st of December this year to tide over the current surge in medical services. The move will augment the strength of AFMS with 238 more doctors.
