Equipment Need for Child Health
Help us buy a CRRT Machine for Paediatric ICU
Common diseases like Dengue fever, Rickettial infection and other severe infections including Sepsis with shock can cause children to go into acute kidney failure. These children need dialysis in the Paediatric ICU. The best way for this to be given, when the child is on ventilator support, is by Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy, but we don’t have a machine for this and it costs Rs.12 lakhs.
The CRRT machine can also save the lives of children with inborn metabolic disorders, liver and heart failure and complications from Leukaemia and bone marrow transplantation.
