MedEquip4Kids is delighted to have provided six resuscitaires for the maternity unit at Furness General Hospital. The equipment will be used to support newborn babies who have difficulty breathing.

The resuscitaires were funded with the help of our long-standing supporters VINCI Construction UK, who are currently on site building the hospital’s new maternity unit.

Heidi Bowron at Furness, who is co-ordinating a major fundraising appeal for the new unit, says: “It’s fantastic to receive this money for six resuscitaires. Resuscitaires are used to help some newborns establish breathing. We will have 14 en-suite bays in the new maternity where mums-to-be will deliver their baby and then stay until discharged. Our aim is to have a wall mounted resuscitaire in each to give labouring mums extra peace of mind from the moment they first enter their room.”

“The contribution of two Acheeva work stations has enhanced what we can offer to many children and students. Two young men are now able to access the larger workstations and their care and quality of life has improved dramatically. Michael now has the extra-large learning station available every day. Please thank everyone on our behalf who raised the money.”
