1 in 200 Omicron Patients Needs Oxygen Support: AHPI Data
The new Covid variant Omicron cases continues to surge across India but oxygen requirements are still low among positive patients in comparison to the deadly second wave.
According to the data collected by Association of Healthcare Providers India (AHPI), the lobby of private hospitals representing 2,500 super specialty and 8,000 smaller hospitals across India, less than 0.5% of the total patients required hospitalization.
At present the average stay of patients in the hospital is around three days, the data submitted by private hospitals and analyzed by AHPI shows. The hospitals AHPI represents include Fortis, Max, Apollo and Medanta across India.
In Delhi and Maharashtra — the top two states registering a massive spike in Covid-19 cases – the bed availability in hospitals remains comfortably over 90 per cent.
During the last wave, India has faced problems due to shortage of oxygen. “This is the reason we have started tracking the use of oxygen in the hospitals while the majority of hospitals have also established their own oxygen production plants,” said Dr Girdhar J. Gyani, director general of AHPI.
The association will monitor the oxygen requirement across hospitals and inform the government as it touches or exceeds 5 per cent.
“Till now, the reported requirement of oxygen among Covid-19 patients is just around 0.5%. We will caution the government as and when it exceeds 5 per cent and bed occupancy exceeds 30 per cent”.
Meanwhile government and private hospitals continue to invest heavily in improving health infrastructures like beds fitted with a regular oxygen supply. Availability of oxygen for critical covid patients becomes an issue of life and death.
