These are some of the items the Branches funded through 2018 events:

Giraffe Shuttle.

  1. rans-Esophageal Neo-Natal Echo Probe                     $30,000

A neo-natal trans esophageal echo probe would support the smallest and most sensitive babies treated at our hospital. The team currently has an infant echo probe, but it is too large to be used effectively for tiny neo-natal infants who are being treated daily at the hospital and weigh three kilograms or less. This device allows for state of the art, trans-esophageal cardiac ultrasound imaging in the safest and most efficient manner possible for highly sensitive, at-risk infants being treated at the hospital.

$22,200 Per Unit/Need 2

These incubators provide everything a baby needs to avoid disturbances during transport, including temperature and humidity control, ventilators, brain cooling devices, and more. $150,000

Rover Hand-Held Bedside Device. Hand held devices at the patient bedside will allow on-the-spot data entry. Care teams will be able to communicate immediately with one another and will be helpful in emergency situations. These portable devices will replace larger computers on carts.
