The request was put forth by the Director of the VIMS, when ENC handed over the Portable Multifeed Oxygen Manifold, a few weeks ago in the wake of the coronavirus.

The facility includes monitoring all patients simultaneously or selecting as required including zooming to one patient, and an audio alarm. Further, the same parameters through an HDMI Ethernet converter have also been provided to the doctors on their mobile over the internet. Therefore, a doctor can at any time monitor his 48 patients in ICU. The conceptualization, to final implementation at VIMS and handing over to its Director VIMS, was completed in six days.
