Allen Family of Allen Research Foundation Donates Oxygen Generators for Greenwich Hospital 

Through their relationship with the Greenwich United Way, Greenwich residents Michelle and Laurence Allen have donated two oxygen generators to the Greenwich Hospital for use in surge areas where liquid oxygen is not available. 

Because of their portability, they can also be sent home with patients who otherwise would not have access to oxygen. The oxygen generators (also known as concentrators) provide 30- 93% oxygen purity, enabling the treatment of COVID-19 patients with milder symptoms, freeing up increasingly limited ICU space for patients requiring critical care.

Understanding factors associated with long-term opioid use in fibromyalgia patients
Fibromyalgia is common, affecting around 2% of people in the general population. The 2017 EULAR recommendations state that tramadol - a weak opioid - may be considered for pain management in fibromyalgia, but advise against use of strong opioids due to lack of evidence of efficacy, and the high risk of side effects and addiction.
