Together with 1200kms for kids Swich On Inc. and Savco we have donated a Jaundice Detector and a RAD-5 Pulse Oximeter valued at $6,540 to Ipswich Hospital
Swich On Inc was represented by Treasurer, Andrew Coates from SB Wealth.
All babies are checked for jaundice (yellowing of the skin) on a daily basis. The Jaundice Detector is used to help clinicians determine the jaundice levels through the skin without harming the baby. If jaundice is left untreated there is a possibility of cerebral palsy, deafness and/or brain damage.
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 Pulse Oximeter allows nurses to record arterial oxygen levels accurately and efficiently and quickly track any changes.
