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.”

“During winter months our admissions of children with respiratory conditions increase, so these saturation monitors are vital to us being able to safely monitor children. They will allow us to monitor more children both continuously through their stay with us and at intermittent times during their visit. Staff will find the additional units make their jobs easier.”
