OKHMATDIT needs beds for hemodialysis
The Department of Intensive and Efferent Therapy of Chronic Intoxications of the Okhmatdit Hospital needs our help! It’s necessary to purchase 3 beds for renal replacement therapy!
In the department, there are children aged from 0 to 18 with very serious “breakdowns” of the body’s filtering system – kidney disease. Someone’s kidneys do not work from birth, someone else’s kidneys failed after illness or poisoning. Many of these children are in the department for several years – they are tied to the hospital by the need to be connected to an artificial kidney machine three times a week, the procedure lasting nearly eight hours. And all this just to live! It means to depend on everything: on the quality of drugs, on the level of water purification, on the mood of the doctor, on the queue for the procedure, on the time of day, as well as on the comfort of the bed.
Renal replacement therapy is relevant and will be relevant for many years to come. Every year, there are 100-200 people in need of hemodialysis per 1 million people in the world. Unfortunately, in Ukraine, only 140 patients out of a million can receive such treatment, also due to the lack of a sufficient number of specialized beds.
Together, we will help the Department of Intensive and Efferent Therapy of Chronic Intoxications of the Okhmatdit Hospital to purchase three modern hemodialysis beds PH-M01-F MEDNOVA worth UAH 17,000 per bed, which will allow the hospital to take in more sick children for treatment and will make the forced stay of small patients in the hospital more convenient and comfortable!
