             Each one of us has a different health profile. How these subtle physical differences are managed during surgery can have a big impact on its success. With a recent contribution of $5000, the Kawartha Credit Union’s Community Involvement Program will help Ross Memorial Hospital ensure

more effective surgery with the purchase of new anaesthetic gas machines with monitoring features.

            Kawartha Credit Union has a long history of donating towards the purchase of much needed medical equipment for the hospital, including echocardiogram and dialysis machines, MRI and a CT scanner. Recently, Michelle Finley and Kreg McKenzie, Branch Managers of Kawartha Credit Union’s Lindsay and Little Britain branches, visited Ross Memorial to present a cheque towards this latest important purchase.

            An anesthetic gas machine doesn’t simply deliver drugs in the operating room; it also monitors a patient’s vital signs, registers the smallest change to a patient’s status, and alerts a surgical team to a potential danger.

            New technology allows anaesthetists to customize their workstations to the specific patient. With the new machines, Ross Memorial Hospital anaesthetists can monitor the anaesthetic gas machine system carefully and report concerns to the surgeon.
