The Paediatric Unit at Macclesfield District General Hospital cares for children aged from 0-18 from across the East Cheshire area. During the winter months, more children need care for respiratory conditions meaning the ward is busier and the demand for essential equipment increases.

Airvo Optiflow System:

The unit have requested Airvo Optiflow Systems to ensure effective treatment is readily available.

When children have respiratory distress – severe chest infection, asthma or bronchiolitis – they often require supplementary oxygen. The ward can currently give high volumes of oxygen by Opti-flo or CPAP but the Airvo will give humidified oxygen which can be an alternative treatment or used as a follow up helping to ensure there is no relapse. The unit also treats patients with tracheostomy who would benefit from the Airvo System.

MedEquip4Kids have been asked to provide an extra 2 Airvo Optiflow Systems to ensure that the patients receive the necessary support promptly thereby improving their recovery time. The total cost of supplying this equipment is £6,113.25

Syringe Drivers and Infusion Pumps:

These lightweight devices are used to administer intravenous medication accurately, efficiently and with greater comfort for the patient. They are used when medications and fluids need to be infused slowly and steadily over a longer time period rather than being pushed into the patient. Some children need several infusions at the same time which can delay procedures for others if there are not enough units available.

MedEquip4Kids have been asked to provide an extra 2 Syringe Drivers and Infusion Pumps to ensure that the patients receive the necessary medications promptly thereby improving their recovery time. The total cost of supplying this equipment is £5980.00

“The specialist treatment chairs are a new vital resource for the therapy team and nursing staff to be able to safely and comfortably sit extremely complex, dependant, critical care patients out of bed. The chairs allow us to begin the patient’s rehabilitation journey by providing appropriate postural support at the same time as pressure relief to allow the patient to build the muscle strength to hold themselves up against gravity. This allows them to begin to interact with their environment in a more normal way, enabling them to participate in meaningful activities such as meal times and activities of daily living.”
