Cardiac Monitoring System Campaign
Launched in November 2010, the Foundation of CKHA’s Cardiac Monitoring System Campaign is a $1 million fundraising campaign to support the recent purchase of a new cardiac monitoring system for CKHA’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Installed in November 2011, the new cardiac monitoring system features twelve bedside units that monitor a patient’s heart rate, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, invasive blood pressure and respiratory rates. This much-needed system is essential for the basic care of every patient who requires the services and care provided by CKHA’s ICU.
To date, more than $633,500 has been raised for the Foundation of CKHA’s Cardiac Monitoring System Campaign.
