PSA Plants a Boon for Healthcare in Modern Times

Saurabh Sharma [11]

Abstract: Oxygen as a gas is present in our atmosphere in the percentage of around 21%. It is essential to sustain all the life present on this planet. But when COVID19 erupted it busted our myth of easy availability of this natural entity available to us. COVID 19 pandemic swept across all the world killing millions of people, primarily due to lack of Medical Oxygen. This disease put forth an unprecedented stress on the healthcare system and professionals and demanded a new way to counter this disease. Before this era though medical oxygen was considered as an essential entity but it is during the COVID era need and demand for this increased manifold. As they say that new challenges require new ways. Medical oxygen primarily was available in our system in the form of cylinders. Big hospitals and medical colleges had cryogenic liquid oxygen tanks but they were limited to only few. Then came in Picture PSA plants, full form Pressure Swing Adsorption technology, which extracted oxygen from the air and provided purity upto 96%. these plants not only proved to be life savior but also cost effective in post COVID era.
