Tomsk hospitals will purchase six “Tianox” devices for patients with COVID-19

TOMSK, February 15. /Then 24/. Devices for the synthesis, supply and monitoring of nitric oxide “Tianox” will be supplied to respiratory hospitals in Tomsk for the treatment of patients with COVID-19 during the year. The devices are needed to simplify nitric oxide treatment technology for respiratory failure, Viktor Selemir, director of the Physics Research and Production Center at the Russian Federal Nuclear Center (RFNC), told Then24.

“In 2022, it is planned to supply three respiratory hospitals in Tomsk with nitric oxide treatment devices “Tianox”, developed at the All-Russian Research Institute of Experimental Physics. Thanks to them, you will not have to buy nitric oxide in cylinders, which will greatly simplify the use of this technology,” said Selemir.

According to Irina Bakirova, representative of the center entrepreneur responsible for the sale of devices, the Ministry of Health of the Tomsk region is looking for a purchase opportunity, then competitive procedures will take place. During the year, it is planned to supply two devices to three institutions each: medical unit No. 2, maternity hospital No. 4 and clinics of the Siberian State Medical University. The market value of one “Tianox” is about 5 million rubles.

Researchers from Tomsk have introduced a nitric oxide treatment method to the city’s respiratory hospitals. With the development of respiratory failure, the time to obtain a negative PCR test was reduced by 30% in patients with coronavirus. On the third day, they needed half as much oxygen on oxygen support.

As Selemir explained, the technology currently uses nitric oxide in bottles, which is expensive and associated with logistical difficulties. It is necessary to buy gas in Novosibirsk, deliver it, connect cylinders to special foreign-made equipment worth more than 5 million rubles. If nitric oxide is finished, it is not always possible to deliver it quickly in case of severe deterioration in patients. The “Tianox” device synthesizes it from the air.
