We need your help to keep hearts pumping in our Catheterisation Lab (Cath Lab).

We need your help to keep hearts pumping in our Catheterisation Lab (Cath Lab).

From time to time, when patients are very unwell, they will need emergency CPR when having treatment in the Cath Lab. The Cath Lab Team are trained and ready to take on CPR at any time they are needed. Wearing 10kg of lead and full PPE, they are ready to go.  
But...we know there's a better way, mechanical CPR. Equipment which is safer, stronger and which will keep going with battery back-up for as long as required. This equipment allows our Cath Lab Team to do what they do best, finish the lifesaving procedure for the patient and get them back to the ward, for the care they need, in the shortest possible time.

This Christmas, we'd like your help to purchase a mechanical CPR machine.
