Bengaluru Needs Oxygen
Oxygen is proving vital in the fight against COVID-19, but we are experiencing an acute shortage in its supply as COVID cases surge.
There is a huge gap between the demand and supply of oxygen and NAVA BENGALURU is getting repeated requests for oxygen. So we are trying to procure 50 oxygen concentrators that will be given free of cost to needy and under-privileged Covid-19 patients who are in home isolation in Bengaluru.
Each concentrator will be given to a patient for one week as per the standard operating procedure till the condition improves.
What is a Oxygen Concentrator ?
Oxygen concentrator is a portable medical device used for delivering oxygen to individuals with breathing-related disorders. It filters the surrounding air, compressing it to the required density, and then delivers purified medical-grade oxygen into a pulse-dose delivery system or continuous stream system to the patient.
It removes the need for replacement or refilling – whereas oxygen tanks contain a fixed amount of pressurized oxygen.
How do they compare with cylinders in terms of cost and maintenance?
While at Rs 50,000 concentrators are more expensive than cylinders Rs 15000, it’s largely a one-time investment. Apart from electricity and routine maintenance, there’s little by way of operational cost, unlike cylinders that involve refilling costs and transportation.
Nava Bengaluru: Who are we ?

Our clinic is equipped with a doctor, nurse, driver, and community manager. We have targeted to serve more than 30,000 patients annually.
How much each Oxygen Concentrator costs?
Each Concentrator costs around Rs 50,000/-
