Share the Care
This year the Monash Health Foundation (the fundraising department for all of Monash Health) is conducting a major appeal “Share the Care”.
One area people can support is MonashHeart and our goal to raise $10,000 for the purchase of four syringe drivers for the MonashHeart cardiac catheterisation laboratories.
Syringe drivers are very precise infusion pumps used in critical heart attack and cardiac arrest situations for our sickest patients in the cath lab. However, when the anaesthetist asks for a syringe driver for infusing important live-supporting medications, we do not have easy access to any syringe drivers. After-hours this is particularly problematic when there are few staff available to locate syringe drivers from other departments across Monash Medical Centre.
Help us raise $10,000 and ‘share your care’ this December and January.
