Ceylinco Life recently donated High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) equipment to the Teaching Hospital Ratnapura under an on-going initiative to provide essential equipment to hospitals treating patients with respiratory failure. The High Flow Nasal Cannula apparatus is used in the treatment of patients who require oxygen via non-invasive ventilators, and to bridge patients being weaned from invasive ventilation.
Ceylinco Life has already donated similar equipment to the Colombo South Teaching Hospital Kalubowila, the Teaching Hospital Batticaloa, the Kantale Base Hospital, the Teaching Hospital Kuliyapitiya, the District General Hospital, Matale and the Matara District General Hospital.
A longstanding benefactor of government hospitals, Ceylinco Life has also built, equipped, and donated High Dependency Units (HDUs) to the Colombo South Teaching Hospital, Kalubowila, the National Hospital, Colombo, the Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital, Jaffna Teaching Hospital and the Kandy Teaching Hospital. HDUs are needed to upgrade a patient from normal care or as a step down from intensive care, helping release beds in the intensive care units. These units are used for post-surgery care, before transferring patients to the wards, or to treat an intensive disease.
