Abbotsford – The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation is announcing the largest donation ever to the Paediatrics Unit at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre. RE/MAX Little Oak Realty has donated $138,000 for the purchase of a new Central Cardio-Respiratory Monitoring System.
“On behalf of all the Agents at RE/MAX Little Oak Realty, it’s a privilege to make this donation to the Paediatrics Unit at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre,” says Todd Hendrickson of RE/MAX Little Oak Realty. “This hospital means so much to the community, and has played such an important role in the health and wellbeing for our children. We’re proud to support the Paediatrics Unit with the purchase of this vital equipment.”
The Central Cardio-Respiratory Monitoring System monitors patients’ heart rates, cardiac rhythm, breathing frequency and oxygen saturation, and will replace small, portable monitoring units that are currently being used. The new system will be an improvement because it is much quieter and monitors will be mounted in the wall next to each bed, which will eliminate excess chords and power cables that the portable units require. In addition, medical staff will be able to monitor patients from nursing stations in real time and be able to react quicker if a medical emergency develops.
