ArmInfo. The Italian doctors, who are providing professional support these days to their Armenian colleagues at the "Surb Grigor Lusavorich" MC, donated to the resuscitation department of the medical center a unique ventilator.
This device has been widely used in Italy for the treatment of COVID-19 and, unlike other mechanical ventilation devices, allows the patient to sit and even drink water.
A group of medical workers from Italy arrived in Armenia in late June as part of international cooperation in the fight against coronavirus. The humanitarian mission consists of 11 people. The group arrived from the region of Italy with the largest number of coronavirus infected, and its members have extensive experience working with patients. The mission will operate in Armenia for three weeks. Earlier, a group of doctors from Russia, France and Lithuania arrived in Armenia to help combat the spread of coronavirus.
