We are raising money this hour for Portable Cardio-Respiratory Monitors to help children in hospital at risk of respiratory failure.
$5,770 each. We need 107 new Miracle Makers to buy 4.
- Cardio-respiratory monitors are state-of-the-art technology used as part of an Early Warning System within our-patient units.
- This equipment will help predict and prevent respiratory failure… helping babies and children with illnesses like severe asthma, RSV and bronchiolitis, as well as kids with breathing and airway problems.
- Radiothon listeners helped fund a few Cardio-respiratory monitors a few years ago and since then, these they have become standard care at our hospital.
- This cutting-edge technology helps physicians and clinicians respond more rapidly than ever – even when they’re not in the room with the child. In addition to being alerted of emergencies, hospital specialists can generate automatic reports immediately following medical events – allowing physicians to analyze, assess and prevent future crises.
- This equipment will help 1,500 children each year.
- These smaller, more portable monitors will be used when transporting a patient at risk for respiratory failure to Diagnostic Imaging, the operating room or even the playroom. They would monitor the child in transport around the hospital and ensure a seamless, high standard of safety, even when they’re not in their rooms.
