Cebu doctors attending to Covid-19 situation need public's help

THE Mandaue Anesthesia Specialists Co. (MASC), a SEC-registered group of doctors serving patients of Cebu City and Mandaue City is in need of help.

In light of the war against the spread of the Covid-19, our specialty is dramatically involved in the treatment of critically-infected Covid-suspected patients requiring mechanical ventilation for survival.

Our specialty is primarily responsible for establishing the tracheal airway of the patient before they can be connected to the ventilator.

Because of this, our profession is exposed at the highest risk of being contaminated by a Covid-19 patient.

Eversince the Covid-19 crisis started, we have been responding to the needs of our afflicted brothers and sisters needing mechanical ventilation.

Our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is depleting at a fast rate together with our financial capability.

We are knocking on generous hearts to consider our group as one of your recipients of PPE's so we can protect ourselves and continue to serve.

It is without doubt that the public’s wholehearted help to MASC will save the lives of patients and healthworkers as well.
