ODM party leader Raila Odinga shared a picture shared of him seated on a chair reading a book, next to him is what looks like an Oxygen concentrator with many wondering about Baba’s health even though he looked okay from the photos.
The device concentrates oxygen from a gas supply by selectively removing nitrogen to supply an oxygen-enriched product gas stream. It takes air from the surroundings, extracts oxygen, and filters it into pure oxygen allowing the user to breathe.
A patient can use humidifier bottles attached to the home unit to help moisten the oxygen inhaled instead of stuffing in to the nose. It is prescribed to patients who need constant oxygen while at home or while they sleep.
Most of the Covid-19 patients have been noted to have less than 70 percent oxygen circulation prompting them to be put on oxygen 15 litres per minute. The level of oxygen varies with the circulation in the blood.
