In alignment with ViTrox commitment to Environment, Social & Governance (ESG) best practices, ViTrox has made a donation of 5 sets of respiratory support units worth RM114,000 through the Buddhist Tzu-Chi Merits Society Malaysia to Penang General Hospital ICU to contribute to the wellbeing of the community by catering to the needs of the critically ill Covid-19 patients and to support the medical frontliners. 

Buddhist Tzu-Chi Merits Society Malaysia handed seven units of myAIRVO 2 to the Penang General Hospital on 3 June 2021.

“Our organization’s medical mission is ‘safeguarding lives and health with love.’ We will continue to strive towards this direction,” Buddhist Tzu-Chi Merits Society Malaysia commissioner Khoo Boo Leong said, “Tzu-Chi is grateful to all its donors. ViTrox Corporation Berhad participated by being one of the donors.” 

“With ViTrox’s core values I.A.C.T.G. (Integrity . Accountability . Courage . Trust & Respect . Gratitude & Care) and commitment to Environment, Social & Governance (ESG) best practices, we donated the medical equipment to support those in need and our kind act brings hope to the community,” said Mr Chu Jenn Weng, President & CEO of ViTrox.

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s myAIRVO2 would be able to support the needs of the COVID-19 patients at the new high dependency ward in Penang General Hospital. The myAIRVO2 provides respiratory support and airway hydration for critically ill COVID-19 patients. It provides a high flow of air or oxygen mixtures to spontaneously breathing patients through the Optiflow nasal interface.

Thriving Through Greater EMS Collaboration

08/23/2022 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Events of the past two years have clearly demonstrated the value of strong trading relationships. When materials become constrained, as in the recent microchip shortage or any of the pandemic-driven supply chain snafus, the companies that have those materials have a choice to make. Which customers will be put at the front of the line, and which will be placed at the rear? Too often, company executives assume that since they are a large buyer, they automatically will be prioritized when supplies are constrained. Research has shown that this is not always the case, and that assumption can leave a company in a weakened position.
