This year, Race for Grace is aiming to raise vital funds to purchase Dräger© Babytherm intensive care beds, valued at $24,900 and Dräger© VN800 Ventilators valued at $64,900.
The Dräger© Babytherm is an open style base heated warming system that improves access to the baby for both care providers and the family. Our biomedical engineering team will convert this bed into a mobile intensive care bed equipped with full ventilation support, monitoring system and intravenous infusion pumps to ensure babies can be transported to various destinations around the hospital with full support.
The Drager VN800 Ventilator helps babies with complex congenital, surgical and heart conditions breathe, using a variety of sophisticated modes. Ultimately, this extra help can improve their breathing and overall survival.
