Samridh support

SAMRIDH has assisted Collateral Medical (ColMed) with operational cost for the distribution of importing 3000 oxygen concentrators, ventilators, BiPAP machines and other similar devices to help bridging the supply gap in hospitals and enabling better management of COVID-19 patients. Under the partnership, ColMEd has provided oxygen concentrators and ventilators and BiPAP devices at subsidised rates to hospitals and COVID-19 care units serving vulnerable populations and tier 2 and tier 3 cities.

The sudden onset of the second wave of COVID-19 in India posed the challenge of meeting an unprecedented rise in demand for medical oxygen. Due to the complexities involved in safely transporting liquid oxygen and the bottlenecks in prevailing demand and supply, the shortage was felt more acutely in tier 2 and 3 cities.

Distribution of Oxygen Concentrators, ventilators and other similar devices at Subsidised Rates to Healthcare Facilities

Collateral Medical Private Limited (ColMed), a distributor of medical equipment and devices in India, is enhancing the distribution of oxygen concentrators at affordable prices to plug the supply gaps in healthcare facilities. The support from SAMRIDH enabled ColMed to streamline the process of distributing oxygen concentrators and other similar devices at discounted rates to make it affordable and accessible to the public.
