Vital Equipment Purchased for Theatre and ICU

Friends of Wexford General Hospital, on your behalf, purchased much needed equipment for use in Theatre and ICU at Wexford General Hospital.The purchase of the Olympus Endoscopy Stacking System replaces an obsolete unit that could no longer be serviced or repaired. The new system enables physicians at the hospital to have mobile Endoscopy imaging both in theatre and I.C.U. This is particularly helpful in situations where a patient may be bleeding and requires medical intervention under general anaesthesia. It also enables the anaesthetic team to provide emergency endoscopic interventions in Theatre and I.C.U. The unit cost almost €77,000 was gratefully received by Theatre staff at the hospital.
