The Neonatal Unit at Wythenshawe Hospital cares for approximately 500 babies each year from across the South Manchester area. Up to 40% of these babies will need additional help with breathing or treating for conditions like jaundice. All babies have their oxygen level and heart rate monitored on admission to the unit.

MedEquip4Kids have agreed to raise funds for 3 essential items of equipment for the Neonatal Unit. The Fabian Therapy system will provide oxygen and pressured flow when needed to either support breathing or breathe on the baby’s behalf. A  Pulse Oximeter measures the blood oxygen level and heart rate thereby highlighting any problems.  A Bilisoft Phototherapy Pad allows babies to be comforted and wrapped during treatment for jaundice. These items will ensure that preterm or poorly babies will continue to receive the support necessary for the best possible outcome.

The cost of providing these 3 items is £17,849.71.

“The new beds for parents have had such a positive impact on the wellbeing of our children knowing their parent or carer is close by. But also for the parent being able to sleep comfortably next to their child has made such a difference to how they have responded to staff during difficult times on the ward. The difference a good night’s sleep makes is priceless.”
