A grand opening event was held yesterday at the retail store. Gracing the occasion with his presence was Dr Loo Choon Yong, executive chairman of Raffles Medical Group.
The patented Buzud Oxygen Concentrator which is HSA-approved, has an oxygen purity level of 93% to 96% when the flow rate is between 0.5 to 5L per minute. The device is suitable for use at home and is especially beneficial for COVID-19 home recovery, for use by the elderly, and for individuals suffering from asthma.
Mr. Frankie Fan, CEO of Buzud said, "Learning lessons from the pandemic, it is vital for the general public to be aware of the importance of self-care and staying resilient as we prepare for post-pandemic living."
Earlier this year in June, every Singapore household received a free oximeter from Temasek Foundation. The purpose of the exercise was to enable members of the public to measure their blood oxygen levels during this pandemic period. It also served to teach the public to know what our normal blood oxygen levels is, and flag 'silent pneumonia' for serious COVID-19 infection.
'Silent pneumonia' is one of the most serious consequences of COVID-19, whereby people who are seriously ill can feel well generally, despite their lungs being damaged and they have dangerously low levels of oxygen. When oxygen levels become dangerously low, it is important to seek medical attention.
Having an oxygen concentrator for use at home can serve different needs. For example:
