Israel has donated three new technologies and medical equipment to Primus Super Speciality Hospital in New Delhi. This was the hospital which attended to, and operated upon the wife of Israel's then defence attache to India, who, in 2012, was injured in a terror attack near the embassy.
Israel donated a management and control system for administering medical care from inside and outside the hospital, to patients. The system is developed by Israeli firm Elbit Systems'EX_TEAMS. It also donated Tensor Tips, a non invasive and rapid measurement device that allows large populations to be screened. Manufactured by the firm Cnoga, this measurement system requires the person's fingertip to be placed on the sensor for a minute and then, his or her haemodynamic, haemotologic and blood gas parameters are displayed on the device, and also on the smartphone app and computer app of synced devices, even at a distant clinic. The third technology to be donated is a ventilator called Ventway Sparrow, which can start ventilating the patient anywhere, even in a land or air ambulance. It provides instant aid to patients, and is also useful when patients have to be transferred. Israel also donated a product for airway management of patients, to be used by Emergency medical squad teams. It is manufactured by a firm called Inovytec.
Ron Malka, the Israeli envoy to India, said, “We are confident that these technologies will further bolster their [the hospital's] capabilities to tackle COVID-19. Through the cooperation and the combination of India and Israel's innovative medical prowess, we can find effective solutions that will help both countries, as well as the world.''
Added Surya Bhan, executive chairman of the hospital: “This noteworthy action further cements Israel's commitment towards assisting India in its efforts to tackle the ongoing pandemic and similar diseases.”
