APPEAL No. 13
Neonatal Intensive Care Cot Equipment

ABOUT / MEDIA / DONATE / DONORS / RESULTS



Start Date: 01 January 2009
Closing Date: 01 March 2009

There is a dire need for neonatal intensive care cots in Nagorno-Karabagh as they are non-existant. This equipment can help save the lives of premature and sick newborn babies, thus reducing the mortality rate in the region.

Neonatal Intensive Care Cot can have a huge impact on the outcome for sick and low birth-weight newborn babies. Many of the babies die due to the absence of the appropriate equipment, while their lives can be easily saved, if the necessary facilities are in place. A baby who has problems identified immediately after birth will have the requirement of incubator care and monitoring of vital signs. The vital signs are monitored with the help of a patient monitor that controls blood pressure and blood gases, respiration, heart-rate,etc. The infusion pumps are a part of the equipment, which are there for accurate delivery of intravenous fluids.

The Maternity Hospital in Stepanakert does not hold such facilities and, therefore, the presence of such an incubator and the appropriate equipment can be miraculous.

Kathy Mellor, from the UK BirthLink organisation, has great experience in neonatal care and is constantly travelling to Nagorno-Karabagh to contribute to the development of neonatal care. She will complete the necessary training on her visit to Nagorno-Karabagh to ensure all the staff use this equipment safely and appropriately.
