Freshly Distilled Pure Water for Oxygen Concentrators
Water Distillation Systems from Borosil
ICMR, WHO, Medical experts, Oxygen concentrator manufacturers recommend the use of steriled water to reduce the risk of blackfungus infection – Mucormycosis in Covid-19 patients.
Borosil’s Compact Distillation unit makes fresh distilled water every day in a simple setup.
Use fresh distilled water to minimize the risk of Mucormycosis
In the past few weeks the deadly black fungus, Mucormycosis, with a mortality rate of 50% has been reported frequently in Covid-19 patients getting treated in hospitals.
It is seen to affect the individuals with low immunity who come in contact with fungal spores in their environment.
Don’t let an Oxygen Concentrator Lead to Infection
Manufacturers of Oxygen Concentrators e.g. Phillips, recommend guidelines to prevent respiratory infections. Some of the important recommendations are,
Cleaning the humidifier bottles daily
Replacing the water in the humidifier bottles with distilled water daily
Oxygen tubing and humidifier bottles MUST be cleaned and sterilized regularly
How fresh distilled water will make a difference?
Many bacteria and fungi are known to grow even in the low nutrient distilled water when stored for longer periods. During storage the distilled water gets exposed to the external environment such as sunlight, dust particles, contaminants etc. Contaminants may also leach in the water through the plastic containers used for storage. Over a period of time, there is all probability that microbial growth occurs inside the storage containers contaminating the water, which often remains unnoticed.
For critical applications such as medical use, the best and the safest practice would be to use freshly made distilled water collected in glass containers.
Recommendation by Medical Experts
“Field reports suggest that a significant number of Covid patients are developing mucormycosis complications. Mucormycetes is a group of fungi that causes this fungal infection. They are omnipresent and can enter the body through the nose and mouth through the inhalation of it’s spores. Usually the immune system is able to easily destroy mucor. However, in individuals with compromised immune systems for any reason like medications or otherwise, serious medical complications can occur.
There is now a general consensus that certain precautions can greatly reduce the risk of mucor or other fungal infections. One of the recommendations is the use of distilled water in oxygen humidifiers. Distillation which involves boiling and condensing of steam is probably the best way to destroy fungal spores. There is an urgent need to create awareness in the hospitals of the country about the use of distilled water in humidifiers, nebulizers, and to make it easily accessible to care givers.”
