New Delhi: AAP MLA Atishi has launched an 'Oxygen Concentrator Library' at her office in Kalkaji here to help patients gasping for the life-saving gas in the national capital.

The library, set up with the support of American Indian Foundation and Daivik Foundation, was launched on Monday. It will provide free-of-cost services of concentrators to patients suffering from low oxygen saturation levels.

"In these difficult times, we all need to come together in this fight against Corona. I have launched an Oxygen Concentrator Library' in my MLA Office at Kalkaji, with the support of American Indian Foundation and @daivikflondon!," tweeted Atishi, who represents the Kalkaji constituency in South Delhi, on Tuesday.

After a patient has used the concentrator, it will be returned to the MLA office and will be available for use by other patients, she informed.

An oxygen concentrator is a medical device that concentrates oxygen from ambient air. It is in high demand due to increasing COVID-19 cases in the country. These concentrators capture and filter the air, unlike oxygen cylinders which can only store a fixed amount of oxygen.
