A report by Kenyans informed that the machine concentrates oxygen from a gas supply by selectively removing nitrogen to supply an oxygen-enriched product gas stream.

It takes air from the surroundings, extracts oxygen, and filters it into pure oxygen allowing the user to breathe.

It is prescribed to patients who need constant oxygen while at home or while they sleep.

A medical report indicated that when the oxygen circulation in a patient is less than 90 percent in the blood, they’re put on oxygen to aid breathing.

This came weeks after Raila was diagnosed with COVID-19 and admitted at the Nairobi Hospital for days.
