As a non-profit, Cheshire Medical Center is continually seeking to meet the needs of our community to ensure we have the equipment, technology and facilities to keep us on the leading edge of healthcare.
Today, we are asking the Community to come together around an important need – to help Cheshire Medical Center purchase patient care equipment – 17 crash cart defibrillators and portable digital X-ray machine.
Our 17 crash cart defibrillators have reached the end of their useful life. At Cheshire, “crash carts” are positioned strategically throughout the hospital. The new defibrillators have several advantages, i.e., they provide audible and visual feedback on the quality of the clinician’s CPR. For example, if a nurse is not pushing deep enough or the compression rate is too slow, the machine tells them to “push harder” or prompts the nurse to take other corrective action. In addition, the devices are smaller. They have a longer battery life and record all data, allowing for performance assessment and training.
Our current portable X-ray machine uses old image processing technology and the vendor no longer services with replacement parts. Bringing the latest portable digital X-ray technology to Cheshire Medical Center allows our physicians to view their patient’s images in less than one minute and make treatment decisions at the patient’s bedside.
