Messer in Columbia supplies hospitals with medical gases and helps them develop and expand their gas supply systems. These permanent installations extend to the hospital beds or operating rooms. In Colombia, however, the gases are also supplied to the patients themselves. Messer provides inhalers and ventilators along with the other accessories needed in order to supply individuals with medicinal gases or breathing air.
For people who depend on supplemental oxygen for breathing, Messer also delivers products to the home. Along with gas in cylinders, this increasingly involves the use of concentrators that provide enriched oxygen from ambient air.
In Colombia, Messer also maintains six clinics of its own, where it employs some 1,200 healthcare workers who treat serious chronic respiratory illnesses. At those clinics, patients benefit from state-of-the-art care in a friendly, cozy atmosphere. These facilities also feature sleep laboratories for treating nocturnal respiratory disorders.
