(Fighting New Coronary Pneumonia) From "Human and Other Equipment" to "Supply and Demand Balance" How can medical equipment be poured into Hubei?
China News Agency, Beijing, March 4th (Li Jingze and Li Yanan) Recently, 16 ECMOs (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Machines) across the ocean have touched the hearts of netizens across the country. They have adopted two planes for "cross-border relay" by civil aviation , The journey is nearly 10,000 kilometers, arrived in Wuhan from Frankfurt after 15 hours.
ECMO is commonly known as artificial heart-lung machine. It is included in the sixth edition of the new coronary pneumonia diagnosis and treatment program because it can provide cardiopulmonary support for patients with severe illness for a certain period of time. With the increase of diagnosed and critically ill patients, the demand from Hubei is increasing.
The 16 ECMOs are a batch of 29 from the Central Leading Group for New Coronary Pneumonia Epidemics to support Hubei's emergency procurement from overseas. In the same period, together with the domestic emergency call and the assistance of the medical team in Hubei, a total of 67 ECMOs rushed to the frontline of the epidemic. "At present, in general, ECMO supports Hubei and has played an active role in ensuring the treatment of critically ill patients." Luo Junjie, director of the First Division of the Equipment Industry Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China, said at the press conference of the joint defense and control mechanism of the State Council on the 4th .
ECMO's support is the representative of China's various departments to coordinate and ensure the supply of medical equipment. Mao Qun'an, director of the Planning Department of the National Health and Health Committee of China, said that Hubei has shifted from a shortage of medical equipment to a balance of supply and demand. The medical equipment in various medical institutions, including the isolation point, can basically meet the standard configuration requirements. Equipment ".
Luo Junjie introduced three measures of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and various departments behind the change:
The first is to coordinate planning and strengthen prejudgment. Since late January, companies, associations and experts have been organized to conduct research based on the epidemic situation. It sorted out the main medical equipment that may be used in advance, and established a database covering 38 kinds of medical equipment and more than 200 key enterprises. At the same time, a special person is arranged to track the production inventory and resumption of production of various products.
The second is to focus on critical illness and precise docking. By organizing corporate production, domestic transfers, social donations, and international procurement, we have taken a multi-pronged approach to centrally guarantee the supply of non-invasive ventilators, high-flow oxygen inhalers, and ECMO treatment equipment for critically ill patients, reducing the mortality rate of critically ill patients. .
The third is to promote orderly resumption of work and production, and continue to ensure the supply of equipment. Under the premise of good epidemic prevention and control work, we have adopted a variety of methods such as sending letters and telephones, especially dispatching special personnel of enterprises, and organizing relevant local governments to coordinate on-site, to promote 25 provinces and cities, 31 key enterprises and more than 2,000 Ancillary parts and components enterprises resumed work and production on time.
He emphasized that as of March 3, only the key monitoring enterprises had provided about 65,000 (sets) of medical equipment to Hubei, which basically met the needs of epidemic prevention in Hubei, and realized the application within the scope of Wuhan and related cities. Perfectly match.
With the gradual decline of confirmed cases and the gradual increase of production capacity, a reporter asked at the press conference, how to deal with excess equipment and supplies?
Cao Xuejun, deputy director of the Consumer Goods Industry Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, believes that while fully protecting the demand in Hubei, it is necessary to take into account the needs of other regions in the country, guide enterprises to pay attention to changes in the epidemic situation, ensure that product quality organizes production on demand, and enhance effective supply capacity.
Facing the intensification of the global epidemic, she used protective clothing supply as an example. China is a major producer of protective clothing. Encouraging domestic enterprises producing protective clothing to actively meet foreign demand, regulate production and export in accordance with corresponding standards, and contribute to the global fight against the epidemic.
For possible redundant medical equipment, Mao Qun'an pointed out that the National Health and Medical Commission is working with the National Development and Reform Commission and Hubei Province to study and formulate plans for the disposal of medical equipment after an epidemic, and to strengthen the overall management and scientific deployment of emergency medical equipment. At the same time, this opportunity was also used to improve the equipment level of all levels of hospitals and primary health care institutions in Hubei Province.
The reporter consulted the data and found that since the routine holding on January 22, at least four conferences of the State Council ’s joint prevention and control mechanism have been dedicated to the supply of medical supplies. These press releases showed that the prevention and control supplies were gradually in place, and exposed the epidemic. The shortcomings of the relief supplies.
In this regard, Mao Qun'an stated that the National Health Commission is working with relevant departments to study the mechanism of long-term medical supplies and equipment reserves. He said that this is necessary to deal with various emergencies in the future. (Finish)
