Honiara : 29 October 2016
Letter to the Editor, Island Sun Newspaper.
A specialist item of medical equipment, a Nellcor Oximax N-600 Pulse Oximeter, requested by the Medical Superintendent of the NRH, Dr. R. Jagilly, is on its way to Honiara in a container being sent by the New Zealand Charity Trust (TMH).
The pulse oximeter will arrive in early to mid-November.
A pulse oximeter allows improved patient assessment at the more challenging lower saturation levels common in infants with congenital heart disease (CHD).
