The Bangladeshi companies of Chevron recently provided crucial and timely support to four local hospitals near its Bibiyana and Moulavi Bazar gas plants, donating 15 oxygen concentrators to meet the immediate needs of patients with hypoxemia, which occurs when oxygen levels in the blood are lower than normal, says a press release.

Hypoxemia can cause mild problems such as headaches and shortness of breath and, in severe cases, can interfere with heart and brain function. An oxygen concentrator draws in air, separates the oxygen, and delivers it to a patient through a nasal cannula.

The oxygen concentrators were handed over recently at socially distant events: to Deputy Commissioner Habiganj, Ishrat Jahan, who received 10 oxygenators on behalf of the 250-bed district hospital, Habiganj, and the Nabiganj health complex Upazila. Meanwhile, Upazila Nirbahi Officer of Bahubal Upazila, Habiganj, Snigdha Talukdar, received two oxygenators on behalf of Bahubal Upazila health complex.

Finally, three oxygenators were handed over to Sreemangal Upazila Hospital. External participants in the various events included Habiganj civil surgeon, Dr Mustafizur Rahman; 250-bed district hospital superintendent, Habiganj, Dr Aminul Haque; Sreemangal Health and Family Planning Officer Dr Sazzad Hossain Choudhury, all of whom expressed appreciation for Chevron’s timely initiative.

Imam Hasan Akan, director of corporate affairs in the field, represented Chevron; Senior Coordinator, Community Engagement, Murad Ahmed; and Senior Coordinator, Government Affairs and Social Investment, Srinibash Chandra Nath.
