The lung machine!


This is one of the news which appeared on Times of India app. I was extremely happy to read that one person’s life was saved by using a lung machine. He was suffering from COVID-19 complications. The technical name of the machine is Extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).

In mid-july a Gujrati man was brought to a hospital in Mumbai. He was on a ventilator. The doctors decided to shift him over to ECMO.

In the same hospital they had tried this procedure for 8-10 serious patients. All of them succumbed except this person.

The duration of treatment is for two weeks. The cost could range between ₹50k to ₹100k per day. The cost has been the limiting factor for many patients to opt for this treatment.

This patient eventually recovered from COVID-19 complications. It is believed that at least seven patients have recovered from COVID-19 complications by using ECMO all over the country.

The treating intensivist has expressed great satisfaction for able to save one soul. It’s quite rewarding experience when one patient’s life is saved.

Luke 15:7 (CJB): I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who turns to God from his sins than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need to repent.

I admire and respect the engineers who designed this machine. Their genious efforts has become fruitful. One life is more important and precious.

Similarly in today’s scripture quote, Yeshua said that if one person repents and gets saved then there’s a great joy in the kingdom of heaven.

Do you have similar stories to share? Please do share with me. Be blessed in the name of Yeshua Meshiakh.
