New Delhi, 5th February 2021: In yet another milestone in the Israel-India cooperation to fight Covid-19, the Embassy of Israel in India contributed state-of-the-art AI-based technologies and medical equipment to Primus Super Speciality Hospital, New Delhi. The high-end equipment and technology solutions will assist the hospital in its efforts to tackle Covid-19 and similar diseases more effectively and enhance its overall healthcare facilities.
The Embassy is closely associated with Primus Hospital. Several Israeli diplomats have received medical treatment here. In February 2012, the wife of an Israeli diplomat was critically injured after an Israeli diplomatic vehicle was bombed in a terror attack in Delhi. She was rushed to Primus Hospital, where she was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and was successfully operated.
Ambassador of Israel in India, H.E. Dr. Ron Malka said, “We are pleased to share the best medical technology from Israel with Primus Super Speciality Hospital. We are confident that these technologies will further bolster their capabilities to tackle Covid-19. Through cooperation and the combination of India and Israel’s innovative medical prowess, we can find effective solutions that will help both countries, as well as the world.”
Executive Chairman, Dr. (Prof.) Surya Bhan said that, ”This noteworthy action further cements Israel’s commitment towards assisting India in its efforts to tackle the ongoing pandemic and similar diseases. The products contributed come from 3 Israeli companies. The technologies include advanced medical management systems and AI-based solutions that can help medical teams perform various tasks remotely. This equipment will not only be instrumental in providing fast and effective treatment but will also be an important stepping stone to strengthen the relationship between the two countries.”
The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Israel to India have donated a management and control system for administering medical care from inside the hospital and outside the hospital. These technologies have been developed by the Israeli company Elbit Systems’ EX-TEAMS.
Another technology the MFA and the embassy have donated is Tensor-Tips, a non-invasive and rapid measurement device that allows large populations to be screened, from the Israeli company, Cnoga. The measurement process is simple — just put your fingertip on the sensor, close the lid and wait one minute as the measurement is taken automatically. Hemodynamic, hematologic and blood gas parameters are displayed simply and clearly on the device, smartphone app and computer app in a distant clinic.
Also, medical technologies have been donated by Israeli company Inovytec, a medical device company, including Ventway Sparrow ventilators that can start ventilating anywhere including land or air ambulances. These can be used for patient transfers from emergency rooms to ICU or from surgery rooms to recovery rooms inside the hospital. Another medical product donated by the company is LUBO, a first-line airway management tool for EMS teams and first-responders, including neck stabilization for trauma patients. These products’ purpose is to strengthen the healthcare continuum in the chain-of-survival and to improve outcomes in both routine and emergency medical events.
