Transcription

1 Humpty s Wish List helping put kids back together The following items have been requested by some of the hospitals and health services that Humpty currently supports. Each item has been assessed and approved by Humpty s Medical Sub Committee to appear on Humpty s Wish List which is regularly updated. If you do have any questions surrounding Humpty s Wish List or would like to purchase an item off the List please call Humpty on for assistance. We hope you can help grant some of these vital wishes. NEW SOUTH WALES AERONEB SOLO NEBULISER SYSTEM: $2,840 EACH 3 needed for Sydney Children s Hospital, Randwick Paediatric Intensive Care Unit This piece effectively delivers prescribed inhalation medication to infants by producing a fine particle, low velocity aerosol optimized for deep lung deposition. The solo adds no additional airflow to the ventilation circuit therefore it does not trigger false and unnecessary ventilator alarms. A distinct advantage is that it can be used for intermittent and or continuous treatment to an infant in what can often be a critical situation. AIR OXYGEN BLENDER: $3,585 EACH 3 needed for John Hunter Children s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit It is imperative for medical staff to deliver the correct amount of oxygen every time a baby is on oxygen therapy. This device enables doctors and nurses to blend oxygen and air together and ensure the correct amount of oxygen is delivered to very fragile babies in the Intensive Care Unit.

2 RAD8 PULSE OXIMETER: $4,030 1 needed for Canterbury Hospital Paediatric Ward This monitor measures pulse and oxygen saturation levels. It does this by shining a light through the child or infant s finger or toe to gain a fast and accurate reading. This monitor is able to provide accurate readings on patients with low perfusion and high activity. This ensures correct and safe oxygen delivery for patients. BILISOFT PHOTOTHERAPY SYSTEM: $8,400 EACH 2 needed for Liverpool Newborn Intensive Care Unit & Westmead Newborn Care Centre Phototherapy blankets are used to treat jaundice in babies in such a way that the baby and mother are not separated. The baby can be held, fed, even rocked when phototherapy is required to prevent damage to the developing brain. The blanket is wrapped around the baby and is maintained in the babies existing cot by the bedside. VPAP SLEEP MONITOR: $9,350 EACH 2 needed for Sydney Children s Hospital, Randwick Intensive Care Unit & Department of Sleep Medicine This device helps infants and children breathe through a nasal mask by providing a continuous or a variable flow of air to splint the airways open and help the diaphragm breathe more efficiently. They are designed so children with severe breathing disorders can use the monitors at home, allowing hopefully for a short stay in hospital. JAUNDICE METER: $9,600 1 needed for Canterbury Newborn Care Centre Jaundice (yellow colouring) is a common problem with newborn babies. To determine the level of jaundice in the past a blood sample was obtained by pricking the baby's heel. With this new device it is possible to significantly reduce the number of painful blood samples carried out on the baby by measuring the jaundice level through the skin instead.

3 SKEETER DRILL: $9,650 1 needed for The Children s Hospital at Westmead Operating Suite A Skeeter drill is most commonly used during surgery for the insertion of cochlear implants, as newborn babies now have hearing tests we are able to perform surgery early. INTELLIVUE MP30 CARDIAC MONITOR: $17,200 1 needed for Fairfield Special Care Nursery Cardiac monitors are a first line piece of equipment when needing to resuscitate a newborn after birth. They need to be accurate, easily read and accessible as doctors make decisions based on their readings. This equipment monitors the respiratory rate, heart rate, oxygen saturations and blood pressure of sick neonates. INTELLIVUE MP50 BEDSIDE MONITOR & ACCESSORIES: $22,300 1 needed for Royal Prince Alfred High Dependency Unit This monitor is vital in the care of premature and ill full term babies that are being treated in the High Dependency Unit. It displays all the vital signs of a baby including the heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the blood stream, ensuring any changes in their condition are immediately detected and acted upon. DELTA MONITOR: $25,900 1 needed for Tamworth Rural Referral Special Care Nursery This monitor will allow close observation of critically ill newborn babies in monitoring heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation levels, without invasive procedures that would disturb the baby.

4 Diagnosys Espion Electrophysiology Equipment: $217,850 1 needed for Sydney Children s Randwick, Ophthalmology This piece of equipment measures vision and how well the back of the eye (the retina) works. The major tests are the electroretinogram (ERG) and the visual evoked potential (VEP). An object seen by the eye produces an electrical response in the retina. The ERG measures this response. Children presenting to the eye clinic will sometimes not see because their retina is not working properly. In some cases the only way this can be diagnosed is by performing an ERG. This is done by a disc (electrode) being places on the surface of the eye. The electrode will pick up an electrical response from the back of the eye. The electrode is connected to a computer. In children under 4 years of age the testing is done with some sedation. In older children sedation is usually not necessary. A multifocal ERG allows us to accurately assess where in the retina the abnormality is. The VEP measures what information is getting from the retina to the brain (the visual path). Discs called electrodes are placed on the back of the head to measure the brain waves which arrives from the back of the eye. QUEENSLAND ULTRABLENDER: $4,900 EACH 2 needed for Royal Brisbane & Women s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit This piece of equipment allows for the delivery of oxygen in a precise and adjustable manner. It has two pressure compensated flowmeters mounted to either side and is critical in the treatment of sick children who require extra oxygen to help with their breathing. BILISOFT PHOTOTHERAPY SYSTEM: $8,400 1 needed for Royal Brisbane & Women s Hospital ICU & Special Care Nursery Phototherapy blankets are used to treat jaundice in babies in such a way that the baby and mother are not separated. The baby can be held, fed, even rocked when phototherapy is required to prevent damage to the developing brain. The blanket is wrapped around the baby and is maintained in the babies existing cot by the bedside.

5 JAUNDICE METER: $9,600 EACH 2 needed for Gold Coast Special Care Nursery Jaundice (yellow colouring) is a common problem with newborn babies. To determine the level of jaundice in the past a blood sample was obtained by pricking the baby's heel. With this new device it is possible to significantly reduce the number of painful blood samples carried out on the baby by measuring the jaundice level through the skin instead. BILISOFT PHOTOTHERAPY SYSTEM WITH EXTRAS: $10,100 1 needed for Gold Coast Special Care Nursery Phototherapy blankets are used to treat jaundice in babies in such a way that the baby and mother are not separated. The baby can be held, fed, even rocked when phototherapy is required to prevent damage to the developing brain. The blanket is wrapped around the baby and is maintained in the babies existing cot by the bedside. VICTORIA THREE PIECE RESUSCITATION SYSTEM: $6,800 EACH 8 needed for Royal Women s Hospital ICU & Special Care Nursery The three piece resuscitation system includes an oxygen air blender, a neopuff infant resuscitator and an IV pole that is mounted and fitted to the end of a cot. The system has been developed to ensure every baby has access to safe and controlled resuscitation treatment. The resuscitation system enables best practice methods to be used on babies in the Special Care Nursery and Intensive Care Units. BABYLOG 8000 VENTILATOR SCREEN: $8,250 1 needed for Royal Women s Hospital Neonatal Services This ventilator screen allows oxygen treatment to be fine-tuned to the baby s breathing pattern. The monitor provides constantly updated information which enables clinicians to concentrate on caring for very vulnerable babies.

6 GIRAFFE OMNIBED: $63,900 1 needed for Royal Women s Hospital Neonatal Services This humidicrib provides the warmth and comfort necessary for the optimal growth of sick pre-term babies. This advanced piece of equipment has collapsible walls that allows doctors and nurses easy access to perform life-saving procedures on the tiny baby. With a built in over head heater the baby s temperature is kept at a constant level, even when the walls are down. The built-in weighing machine minimises the disturbances to the newborn during these vital stages in its early life. TASMANIA RAD5 PULSE OXIMETER: $1,840 EACH 2 needed for Royal Hobart Hospital Paediatric Unit This pulse oximeter is a portable, lightweight handheld device used to monitor a child s vital signs. It quickly, accurately and noninvasively measures a child s oxygen saturation levels and pulse rate. It will be used to monitor the vital signs of children recovering from the operating theatre post surgery. RAD8 PULSE OXIMETER: $4,030 1 needed for Royal Hobart Hospital Paediatric Unit This monitor measures pulse and oxygen saturation levels. It does this by shining a light through the child or infant s finger or toe to gain a fast and accurate reading. This monitor is able to provide accurate readings on patients with low perfusion and high activity. This ensures correct and safe oxygen delivery for patients. RAD7 PULSE OXIMETER: $5,300 1 needed for Royal Hobart Hospital Paediatric Unit By shining a light through the child s finger or toe, the oximeter measures the amount of oxygen in their capillaries. This ensures correct and safe oxygen delivery during highly critical times in an effort to prevent damage to organs such as the brain, eyes and lungs.

7 SOUTH AUSTRALIA BABYTHERM 8000 WARMING BED: $25,100 EACH 2 needed for Women s & Children s Hospital Neonatal Nursery The Babytherm provides a controlled temperature environment with ceramic heater elements and a fully integrated heated gel mattress to ensure the baby is kept warm at all times. The bed is designed so hospital staff have access for procedural work and excellent visibility. It is most suitable for mature term newborns who are in need of special care who are often too big to be in an incubator and yet too small to be in an infant cot. WESTERN AUSTRALIA BILISOFT PHOTOTHERAPY SYSTEM: $8,400 1 needed for King Edward Memorial Hospital Neonatal Clinical Care Unit Phototherapy blankets are used to treat jaundice in babies in such a way that the baby and mother are not separated.
