Max Hospital, Delhi, a COVID patient treated with plasma therapy. This is the first case of Delhi, this technique has been used on the Jensen trial basis. The medical director of Max Healthcare, Dr. Sandeep Budhiraja said that we have used this technique in 2 patients, a patient is seeing a very good response. There is a strong expectation that the patient will come out of the ventilator in the next day or two.
Doctor Budhiraja said that Covid’s patients had come to us, the relatives of the patient wanted them to use it in their patients. After approval from the family, we got approval from the Ethics Committee and then it was used, which shows good results. The doctor said that ICMR wants to start a trial on this procedure. They have asked to apply for it on their website. We have applied to it. We also want to be a part of this trial.
As far as this technology is concerned, it is not a new technology, it has been used abroad. Therefore, its use is also being considered in this disease. Dr. Sandeep said that now it is necessary that those who are cured of Kovid, they should come forward for blood donation unless they come forward, it is not possible to use this tank.
