As Milan Pavlovic/Glas Istre writes on the 19th of March, 2020, during these times of coronavirus crisis when any sort of assistance that can contribute to us coping more effectively with this dire situation in which we can all come together is very welcome. The remarkable Croatian company Infobip is making that happen.

The excellent news comes from the Pula General Hospital which has received a valuable donation consisting of four medical devices that are extremely important for the care of suspected or coronavirus infected patients.

One of these devices is an advanced mechanical respirator that is scheduled to arrive in Pula in the coming week, intended for the facility’s intensive care unit. It is a priceless medical device that helps patients with respiratory problems by pumping air into their lungs and allowing their body to function smoothly until the patient recovers and can breathe naturally again without additional assistance.

“The advanced mechanical respirator will be used by patients who need mechanical ventilation support and comes as a donation for the internal medicine unit, while the other three medical devices are intended for the pediatrics department,” Dr. Daniela Fabris Vitkovic stated. A new mobile ultrasound device, a vital function monitor, and a high-throughput therapy system and CPAP bubble for premature babies, newborns and children up to the age of eighteen will also arrive at the department for pediatrics.

“The CPAP device for high-flow oxygen therapy has already been delivered to the hospital and is ready to be put into operation, and the rest should arrive in the coming days. It’s a medical device that helps patients with respiratory failure to overcome a period of illness, and this may delay or eliminate the need to connect them to a respirator. The donation is intended to combat the COVID-19 virus more effectively, and all of these devices will make a significant contribution to helping those patients who show more severe symptoms and require intensive treatment,” Dr. Fabris Vitkovic added.

The donated equipment is worth more than 600 thousand kuna, and Dr. Daniela Fabris Vitkovic thanked the incredible Vodnjan-based company Infobip, which is behind the donation. As one of the leading Croatian IT companies, Infobip reacted very seriously to the threat of the spread of coronavirus, and back at the end of February, all Infobip employees were preventively ordered to work from home.

In doing so, they have shown that they are an extremely responsible company that cares for the health of their employees and their families, and this donation to the Pula General Hospital is a practical example of a socially responsible business that is a shining example to very many.
