A Great Initiative - Integral sets up 20kl liquid oxygen tank in Lucknow

The Integral Hospital, under the Integral Institute of Medical Sciences & Research, Integral University, Lucknow, has continued to take extraordinary steps to serve the society in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Hospital has been efficiently rendering its healthcare services to thousands of patients since March 2020. The role of the hospital in the treatment and management of the disease, with its exemplary care to the patients and the high recovery rate, led to the prestigious recognition at the hands of the Hon'ble Governor of Uttar Pradesh last year.
In continuation of its useful services, the Integral Hospital has installed a liquid oxygen tank at its campus. This Oxygen Tank is the courtesy of Prof. S. W. Akhtar, Founder and Chancellor, Integral University and Dr. Syed Nadeem Akhtar, Pro Chancellor, Integral University, Lucknow.

The tank was commissioned and inaugurated on Monday, 17th May 2021, by Prof. S. W. Akhtar, the Chancellor of Integral University. With its capacity of 20 kilo-liters, the tank will prove useful in maintaining the continuous supply of medical-grade oxygen to the hundreds of beds in the hospital for a few days at a stretch.
The world has been struggling through this devastating Covid-19 pandemic for almost one and half years now and this has been affecting every single one of us ever since then, physically for some, while mentally for the others. Feelings of anxiety, loneliness, depression, sorrow can be observed everywhere, as most of us have been affected in multiple ways. But there is always a way to help make the future better.
The primary motive for the installation of this tank is to tackle the Oxygen shortage that our country is facing during these dreadful times of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Oxygen will be available at Integral Institution of Medical Science and Research to provide helping hands in the Oxygen shortage that our country is facing.

There are numerous advantages of liquid oxygen tanks. For starters, liquid oxygen takes up less space than oxygen in its gas form, making it easier and lighter to carry around. Not only that, it also can be stored at a much lower pressure. This makes liquid oxygen tanks safer than concentrated oxygen cylinders, which are under high pressure.
The University highly appreciates the untiring efforts of Mr. Sufian Abbasi who ensured the setup was installed and commissioned in a few weeks. Integral Hospital is committed to taking all initiatives towards the provision of high-quality healthcare to all citizens of the country.
