The Critical Equipment Sick Kids Need

When you contemplate the continuous demand for critical equipment across Australian hospitals, it is no surprise millions of dollars are spent each year on purchasing equipment. 

Help4Kids is creating initiatives that will help support children’s hospitals to acquire the best equipment.

Here are some examples of the critical equipment we hope to supply to children hospitals:

Apheresis equipment

Apheresis equipment provides life-saving support to many children in our Australian children hospitals, many of who require multiple treatments per week. Certain chronic illnesses require plasma exchange treatment, removing the patient’s plasma and replaces it with donated plasma. 

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation

An ECMO serves a critical role in saving the lives of children fighting illness or injury. The life-support equipment takes over the heart and lungs’ function, giving medical professionals crucial support to treat the child’s complications.

Portable Suction Units

Laerdal Suction Units are vital in emergency scenarios to clear blood, saliva and vomit from a child’s airway. A clear airway is essential for the patient’s breathing but also to ensure pulmonary hygiene to prevent lung infections. The portable LSU is a reliable and crucial piece of equipment that every hospital needs.

Trilogy Ventilator

Trilogy ventilators are important to the health of a sick child as it provides steady respiratory support. The portable equipment can run on batteries to give patient flexibility and can be used continuously. Modern ventilators can record a year’s data for physicians to make adjustments and assess the best care possible.
