Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

RAWALPINDI: The doctors at allied hospitals of Rawalpindi called off various operations during the last two days due to shortage of anaesthetic gas, nitrous oxide. In-charge of the allied hospitals, Prof Dr Umer, said that the required quantity of gas could not be produced in the gas plant due to excessive electricity load-shedding.
Therefore, administrations of the allied hospitals have been advised to carry out only emergency and extremely necessary operations, he added.

He said doctors did not risk of doing major operations at Benazir Bhutto Hospital (BBH) the other day due of the same reason. He said the operations would be carried on routine basis as the situation got better.
