You Can Buy Oxygen Tanks, Nebulizers + More Medical Essentials on Your Next Mall Run
Medical supplies are now more accessible, especially for QC folks.
(SPOT.ph) With Metro Manila now on its third Enhanced Community Quarantine since March 2020, COVID-19 cases continue to rise—exacerbated by the rapid spread of the Delta variant and a less-than-ideal vaccination rate across the country. As infections surge, hospitals around the capital are quickly filling up, struggling to meet the demand for medical attention brought about by the pandemic.
With the lack of hospital beds to go around, patients with less severe cases carry out their recovery at home. If you or someone you know is in need of medical equipment, machinery, and the like for home care, here's where you can stock up: Medical supply shop Medical Depot is now open at Robinsons Galleria, the store's first-ever branch located inside a mall. That means folks who live nearby or regularly visit the Quezon City shopping center for essential purchases can now access much-needed medical tools without having to step into a hospital.
Medical Depot has been supplying hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic centers with medical supplies for over 30 years and currently has 16 branches in the country. Their first mall outpost signals a movement to make medical equipment more accessible and convenient to buy.
What can you buy at Medical Depot in Robinsons Galleria?
Medical Depot’s shelves are stocked with everything you need for both general health practices and serious home care. They've got basical pharmacy finds like medication, toiletries, face masks, first-aid essentals, body-support accessories, and more.
Medical Depot also houses heavy-duty tools that COVID-19 patients as well as elderly and sickly folks may urgently need, but otherwise have a hard time accessing without visiting a hospital. Some in-demand equipment that the store carries includes oxygen concentrators, oxygen tanks, and ventilator machines for those experiencing shortage of oxygen and other respiratory issues. They also have pulse oximeters for measuring heart rate and oxygen saturation in the blood as well as medical-grade disposable face masks and gloves—especially important for those caring for patients at home and authorized to leave their houses for essential errands. Keep in mind that it's important and necessary to consult a medical professional before purchasing and using any medical tools.
Other hospital equipment you'll find in-store includes X-Ray machines, hospital beds, wheel chairs, and emergency equipment like stretchers, extrication devices, spine boards, and the like.
