After playing a prominent role during the nationwide lockdown and ensuring that the country’s supply chain remained intact and transport of vital and medical supplies wasn’t disrupted, SpiceJet is back with its latest innovation in the fight against COVID-19.
SpiceJet today announced the launch of SpiceOxy – a compact, portable, non-invasive ventilation device, which is an effective solution for patients with mild to moderate breathing issues. Additionally, SpiceJet has also introduced fingertip pulse oximeter, a handy device making it easier for people to measure the oxygen level of the blood.
Proudly ‘Made in India’, SpiceOxy has been designed at SpiceJet’s innovation lab by a dedicated team of engineers from SpiceJet Technic, a subsidiary of SpiceJet. SpiceOxy has been certified by international agency TUV and has also obtained ISO 80601-2-80: 2018 (exclusive for medical equipments), IEC 60601-1:2005 and IEC 61000 certification.
“Today is a big day for SpiceJet as we take another giant step in our journey to building a stronger and a more Aatma Nirbhar India. I am extremely happy to share that the SpiceOxy ventilator and pulse oximeter that we are launching today is proudly ‘Made in India’, designed and manufactured by our talented team of engineers. I am sure that these non-invasive, portable ventilators will greatly help patients with breathing issues and other chronic problems and can be easily used at home and taken along during travel. SpiceJet will continue to foster innovation to address challenges and offer solutions.”
SpiceOXY is intended to provide non-invasive ventilator support to treat adult and paediatric patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) or respiratory insufficiency. Since this device is turbine based and light weight, it is perfect to use at home, in an ambulance, on hilly terrains like army base camps, hospitals, and portable applications such as wheelchairs and gurneys.
The device can be used effectively for maintaining oxygen levels and ventilation in patients and can be of significant help for symptomatic COVID-19 patients with mild to moderate breathing symptoms to maintain oxygen saturation.
