The first batch of ventilators, which are vital in the fight against coronavirus, has been delivered to the Başakşehir Çam & Sakura City Hospital

13 April 2020
155 intensive care ventilators, which make a significant difference in the treatment of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), have been delivered to the Başakşehir Çam & Sakura City Hospital, built as part of a Public Private Partnership (PPP) project including Renaissance Healthcare Investment and Japan-based Sojitz.
The Block A of the hospital, for which President Erdoğan ordered to open early, has been prepared and fully equipped for COVID-19 patients and will commence operations on April 20.

The Başakşehir Çam & Sakura City Hospital, which is built under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model including Renaissance Healthcare Investment and Japan-based Sojitz, has been commissioned as an early treatment center for COVID-19 cases upon President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s instructions. The first phase of the hospital will be put into service on April 20, 2020, as part of the fight against the global COVID-19 pandemic. All other sections of the hospital will be fully operational on May 15.

The Block A Section, which will be put into service one month before the planned opening date, is completely isolated from the external environment and equipped with the most advanced technologies. Despite all the restrictions on the international movement of strategically critical goods, the 155-unit first batch of an order for 522 smart ventilators, which minimize human intervention during application, has arrived in Turkey with three trucks. The goal is to complete the installation of the Swiss brand Hamilton’s C3 Ventilators, which have been transported to the Başakşehir Çam & Sakura City Hospital under difficult conditions and through a special route, as soon as possible and use them for COVID-19 patients in the ER and ICU starting from April 20.

Smart ventilators are ready
These ventilators allow for automation when ventilating patients. In addition to the automatic ventilation of patients who are intubated or supported with a mask without intubation, the devices will be able to provide effective treatment, especially in patients suffering from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), as observed with COVID-19, with High-Flow Oxygen Therapy (HFOT). Moreover, with the automatic ventilation function, the patient’s transfer to other units will be ensured without deterioration.

The ventilators automatically use lung-protective ventilation techniques in diseases with acute respiratory failure, as in COVID-19, minimizing the patient’s respiratory load and providing the most appropriate ventilation. Leveraging the automatic ventilation modes of the device, the aim is to provide the safest ventilation with the most appropriate ventilation values specific to the lungs of the patients, to reduce the ventilation period and to achieve a rapid transition to the recovery phase. The device automatically adjusts many of its general settings that the physician would otherwise have to manually adjust, and the need for human intervention decreases with the number of alarms on the device.

Fully equipped to fight COVID-19
The Block A, which will boast a capacity of 1,700 beds, will serve patients with a total of;
• 522 Ventilators,
• 1,274 Bedside Monitors,
• 446 Defibrillators,
• 183 ECGs,
• 1,700 Patient Beds,
• 153 Emergency Stretchers and
• 150 wheelchairs.

In addition, the basic services needed by the hospital such as cleaning, transportation, catering and waste management services, hospital information management service, imaging service, sterilization and disinfection services will be in place for maintaining an uninterrupted healthcare operation.
