Radiothon 2017 thankyou

RADIOTHON 2017: OUR GOAL!

We are going big for Radiothon 2017, aiming to raise $175,000 - our BIGGEST goal yet!

Funds raised on February 14th will fund new surgical equipment for the Operating Room at South Shore Regional Hospital. This is a replacement project; the equipment being replaced, with funds raised by Radiothon 2017, has served our community well but it is time our medical teams work with (and patients receive services from) new and improved technology in the OR.

The equipment Radiothon 2017 will purchase:

ENT Microscope: value $82,040

The current microscope was purchased in 1990 with the normal lifespan being 15 years. This microscope will be used by 3 ENT surgeons with one coming from the IWK on a regular basis.

Five Anaesthesia Carts: total value $9,000

These carts are used in the actual OR Theatre. The carts hold all the necessary equipment and drugs that the Anaesthetist requires for providing Anaesthesia. Our current carts were purchased prior to 1982 and do not meet the current needs of practice. This will provide South Shore Regional Hospital with the ability to have the Department of Pharmacy have more involvement in drug distribution and control.

Pen Drive Set: value $37,600

A Pen Drive is a piece of equipment used for hand, foot and maxillofacial surgery. It is used by our three Plastic Surgeons and four Oral Maxillofacial surgeons to fix fine bones in the hand, foot, mouth and jaw surgeries. It is required for finger, hand and joint replacements. The current system to be replaced was purchased in the mid 1980s and is no longer able to be repaired.

Universal Power Driver: value $8.000

Used by our eleven Orthopedic surgeons at South Shore Regional Hospital, this piece of equipment is used in a vast variety of surgeries, all of which are Day Care cases. The more Day Care procedures we are able to do, it helps to reduce the wait times for the major surgeries done at the larger Orthopedic centres.

Five NIBP Machines DCC/Endoscopy: total value $14,000

These units provide nursing with patients’ vital signs for pre and post-operative care. Monitoring is very important in the care of each patient. The majority of our current machines are old and well past their recommended replacement date. Parts are becoming difficult to obtain and some are now obsolete.

Syringe Pump: value $6,000

A syringe pump is used by Anaesthetists to deliver medications that require a continual infusion.

Pneumatic Tourniquet: value $18,000

A vital piece of equipment used by Plastic and Orthopedic Surgeons to provide blood control on extremities during surgery. Our current unit is well past its replacement date.
