In the parliamentary question submitted by CHP Deputy Sertel to the Speaker of the Assembly with a request to be answered, there were three questions regarding the incident. CHP Deputy Sertel, “İzmir Provincial Health Director Assoc. Dr. Emre Erkuş stated that there was no problem for the patients during the oxygen interruption. The patients continued their lives with oxygen tubes. Well, can oxygen cylinders replace the breathing support device used in patients who lose their ability to breathe on their own in the hospital?
