Nagaland’s first Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) oxygen generation plant will be operational at Naga Hospital Authority Kohima (NHAK) from Monday.

Joint Director of Nagaland Health and Family Welfare department Dr. Neisakho Kere on Saturday said health minister S Pangnyu Phom will inaugurate the first PSA plant at NHAK on Monday.

He said that the production of medical oxygen will commence immediately after the inauguration.

The PSA oxygen generation plant is being funded by PM CARE’s fund.

The sample of oxygen produced by the PSA Plant at NHAK was sent for testing on May 10 while a quality test of the oxygen started on May 13 and completed on Friday.

“Tested sample of medical oxygen is confirming to IP 2018 Standard Quality and is fit for use for Medical Purposes,” the test report said.

Construction of two more PSA plants, one each in Dimapur and Mokokchung district is underway while other districts would also be having PSA oxygen generation plants funded by UNDP and UNICEF.
