Local anesthesiologist raising money to send oxygen to India


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to heavily impact India, local anesthesiologist Dr. Natasha Singh, who was raised there, is working with doctors around the world to provide oxygen for those struggling. “Well it’s really important for us to help because even one life saved is a big contribution,” Dr. Singh said.She said she got involved when she connected with old friends from high school in Mumbai to come up with a way to get those living in India necessary supplies.“The project is called, Oxygen for India and essentially we are sending oxygen concentrators to India and then through a logistics supply chain, supplying different areas,” Singh said. An oxygen concentrator provides 99% oxygen to the patients at home because it can be used with a pressure support machine.“We hope that by doing this and increasing supply we can help alleviate some of the stress on the hospital system and free up some beds by supplying these to people in their homes,” Singh said.The group is raising money through this GoFundMe, so they can purchase and deliver the oxygen concentrators. Singh said the Indian government has reduced tariffs on imports of oxygen concentrators for now so the concentrators will ship via air freight to New Delhi and will also go to small hospitals across the country. “It’s really a desperate situation and there is a dire need so whatever anyone can do,” Singh said.
