Humpty Dumpty Wish List 2021

 

NEOPUFF RESUSCITATION DEVICE: $1,920
Ipswich Hospital, Special Care Nursery, QLD

This equipment provides life-saving resuscitation and ongoing ventilation assistance to infants using up-to-date, user friendly technology. It will be used on a daily basis and can be moved to the bedside of each baby or young child at risk.

RAD 5 PULSE OXIMETER: $2,180 EACH – 11 needed

Atherton Hospital, Maternity, QLD (2)
Baralaba Hospital, Emergency, QLD (1)
Boonah Hospital, Nursing, QLD (1)
Ipswich Hospital, Children’s Sunshine Ward & attached Paediatric Emergency Department, QLD (4)
Longreach Hospital, Maternity, QLD (2)
Noosa Hospital, Emergency, QLD (1)

Accurate measurement of a pulse rate, oxygen saturation and blood flow is essential in assessing the current status and treatment implications for paediatric patients. The Rad 5 (handheld) allows nurses to record arterial oxygen levels accurately and efficiently and quickly track any changes.

AIRVO 2 HUMIDIFIER: $2,920 EACH – 2 needed
Cairns Hospital, Paediatric Unit, QLD (1)
Theodore Multipurpose Health Service, Emergency, QLD (1)

Humidification is important for babies and children suffering from respiratory problems, such as bronchitis, pneumonia and cystic fibrosis. Humidified air and oxygen helps them breathe restfully and clears the chest for ongoing treatment and recovery.

ASTODIA DIAPHANOSCOPE: $3,410 EACH – 5 needed
Baralaba, Emergency, QLD (1)
Boonah Hospital, Nursing, QLD (1)
Cairns Hospital, Paediatric Unit, QLD (1)
Mackay Base Hospital, Women’s Health Unit, QLD (1)
Noosa Hospital, Emergency, QLD (1)

The Astodia Diaphanoscope is invaluable in assisting medical staff to find veins in young patients. It illuminates small blood vessels and other structures filled with air or liquid. This equipment assists in reducing pain as it allows for the quick and accurate placement of a cannula (a tube that can be inserted into the body), to administer vital medicines to babies and children. Importantly there is then no pain on the little patient as the Astodia means the cannula can be placed with fewer attempts. It is particularly useful with darker skin, or when the veins are not visible due to dehydration.

RAD 7 PULSE OXIMETER: $4,750 EACH – 6 needed
Gympie Hospital, Maternity, QLD (2)
Ipswich Hospital, Special Care Nursery, QLD (2)
Mount Isa Base Hospital, Special Care Nursery, QLD (1)
Noosa Hospital, Emergency, QLD (1)

By shining a light through the baby’s finger or toe, the oximeter measures the amount of oxygen in their capillaries. The oximeter sounds an alarm at the slightest change in oxygen levels, allowing life-saving action to be taken to prevent damage to organs such as the brain, lungs and eyes.

GIRAFFE BLUE LED SPOT PHOTOTHERAPY UNIT WITHOUT STAND: $6,420 EACH – 2 needed
Mount Isa Base Hospital, Special Care Nursery, QLD (2)

This compact and lightweight Blue Spot Phototherapy System offers high-intensity phototherapy for effective treatment of hyperbilirubinemia (jaundice), caused by too much bilirubin in a baby’s blood. It emits Blue LED light in a narrow spectral band, focusing on bilirubin’s peak absorption wavelength to speed up its breakdown. The Blue Spot PT can be positioned for precise delivery of therapeutic light directly to the patient, minimising undesired exposure for caregivers and patients in adjacent care areas.

GJM-105 JAUNDICE DETECTOR: $9,680 EACH – 3 needed
Ipswich Hospital, Maternity, QLD (1)
Longreach Hospital, Maternity, QLD (1)
Redland Hospital, Paediatrics, QLD (1)

Jaundice, or yellowing of the skin and eyes, occurs in approximately 50% of full-term and 80% of pre-term babies in their first week of life. It is often an indication of underlying symptoms and as a result, screening of babies for jaundice efficiently and effectively is vital. Unlike a traditional blood test, the JM-105 is non-invasive and provides results in minutes rather than hours.

MX450 MONITOR ON ROLL STAND: $17,130
Gove Hospital, Emergency Department, NT

One of the most common pieces of equipment used for sick and preterm babies, this equipment monitors heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and oxygen levels. Staff are alerted immediately when any of these vital signs change and can avert a potentially fatal event. All babies who are less than 34 weeks’ gestation require cardiac respiratory monitoring, so this cardiac and vital signs monitor is essential. The donation of this monitor would help improve the care of many of the nearly 2000 paediatric patients who present to Gove Hospital emergency department each year.

GIRAFFE OMNIBED CARESTATION: $61,440
Wagga Wagga Hospital, Paediatrics & NICU, NSW

Incubators provide the warmth and protection needed to help preterm infants grow and thrive. This crib offers better access to the sickest of babies and combines the best features of a traditional incubator and a radiant warmer to eliminate the stress of transferring critically ill infants from bed to bed. Over 1200 pregnant women present to Wagga Wagga each year with an additional 300 infants admitted for care. From these large presentation numbers, at least one baby per week will directly benefit from the donation of a Giraffe OmniBed Carestation to Wagga Wagga Hospital.

The cost of the medical equipment as published by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation is an accurate estimate of the list price at the time of publication. It also includes an allowance for handling costs, delivery, handover costs and a plaque to acknowledge the donor. The actual cost of equipment may be different at the time of purchase. Any shortfall in the cost of the equipment will be paid by Humpty, any surplus will be treated as a donation to Humpty’s general account and will be used to financially support the Foundation.
