Donors bring lifesaving care to mothers and babies
Mission Hospital’s Women and Infants Institute now houses two new pieces of advanced technology. This leading-edge equipment helps caregivers deliver care to mothers and their newborns in a timely manner, all thanks to the generosity of Duane and Kelly Roberts.
Postpartum hemorrhage has gained national attention as the leading cause of maternal mortality. Always innovating and searching for new ways to meet the diverse health care needs of women in our community, Mission Hospital determined that Gauss Surgical Triton technology could significantly improve patient outcomes in the face of postpartum hemorrhage. This state-of the-art technology helps caregivers measure blood loss faster and more efficiently, which can lead to earlier interventions when required.
Mission Hospital also invested in new technology that monitors the heart activity of newborns in need of resuscitation. Two Philips IntelliVue Electrocardiogram monitors were acquired, allowing caregivers to view the newborn’s heart rate and keep their hands free to perform vital interventions when needed. Compact, battery-operated and mobile, they are designed for monitoring stationary patients, as well as for monitoring patients being transported within the hospital.
We thank Duane and Kelly Roberts for helping us further advance the Women and Infants Institute at Mission Hospital.
