Nikolaev emergency hospital intensive care unit obtain the necessary equipment in the framework of humanitarian aid from the Netherlands
The hospital obtain the necessary equipment as humanitarian aid from the head of humanitarian organizations in the Netherlands Bob Wouda.
The transfer took place on Wednesday, February 25, at the emergency hospital with the participation of the chief doctor of the hospital staff and Alexander Demyanova intensive care unit.
Receive such assistance is made possible through the mediation of the chief physician Nicholas Hospital MIA Michael Trofanyuka who personally knows Bob Wouda and over the past few years support relationship with him. Wouda is the head of two humanitarian organizations, “Hynder Hoeve ” – a charitable organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of people with nervous system, fund “Children of Ukraine” and board member of SPSN-O as well.
– Bob Wouda invited me to Europe, where our friendship began. He has repeatedly helped us – and it was with children’s bicycles, medical instruments, and uniforms. His wife helps us to overcome the language barrier and deals with logistics, – he said.
Guarantee that it will help to destination made lawmaker Alexander Zholobetsky – this, according to Trofanyuka was an important argument for the Dutch side.
Thus, emergency hospital received two bronchoscope, six stationary tonometer, pulse oximeters and heater fresh frozen plasma.
Head physician of the hospital, Alexander Demyanov noted that these instruments are very much needed in the ICU, and speaking of the bronchoscope, said:
– Previously, we often lose patients in intensive care due to the fact that there was a blockage in the lungs. Therefore, five years ago there was a question of acquisition of equipment that the doctor could sanitize the bronchial tree. Then we acquired one such bronchoscope, but it certainly is not enough, because a lot of patients, and the unit must still make out, sterilized and re-assemble, so it quickly wears out, – said the chief doctor.
These devices, he said, can also be used for children.
– We do not serve the child population, but when we carry the baby because the nearest hospital, we will certainly provide assistance before him does not come resuscitation Service Children’s Hospital – he added.
The resulting stationary sphygmomanometers, which are used to measure blood pressure in the arteries differ from those in the emergency hospital are portable and from greater precision. Pulse Oximeters – a device that responds to changes in capillary pressure and pulse believes patients who are in critical condition. It provides continuous monitoring of patients even in the absence of medical staff.
Also, patients now in dire need of blood can get it much faster, thanks to a special unit for thawing frozen plasma.
– Until now, getting frozen plasma from blood transfusion station, we were thawed it with hot water to a temperature of a person. Today, this device will allow fluidly heat the plasma. That is, at the minimum temperature which will allow flow through the plasma tube drip system, it will be heated to the desired temperature. It will be faster and constant temperature of 36.6 will be maintained at all times – said Dem’yanov.
