Medical equipment

State-of-the-art equipment for the operating room of the Cité-de-la-Santé Hospital

The operating room at the Cité-de-la-Santé Hospital is one of the most high-functioning in Quebec, with more than 17,000 surgeries performed each year. To continue to innovate and considerably reduce post-operative difficulties for our users, the acquisition of certain equipment is urgent.

Bladder San

Portable, lightweight, battery-operated instrument for measuring bladder volume using a 3D volumetric sensor.
Cost: $12,500

Microscope in microsurgery

Thanks to mini-surgery, the Hospital’s plastic surgery department can perform more and more urgent surgeries under local or regional anesthesia. Approximately 2,800 mini-surgeries are performed each year.
Cost: $100,000

Four (4) programmable infusion pumps

In the ERAS (enhanced recovery after surgery) project, programmable infusion pumps are needed to maintain preoperative blood volume. That is, the maintenance of total blood volume, including blood circulating in the vessels and blood immobilized in the body’s blood reservoirs during surgery.
Cost: $16,000

Why donate?

All of this equipment will have a great impact in the operating room, notably by helping to:

  • Reduce discomfort or complications for some patients
  • Reduce the use of large technical trays (for the microscope in microsurgery)
  • Reduce waiting time for the patient
  • Reduce operating time and duration of hospital stay
  • Provide agility and flexibility for the nursing staff
  • Lower costs

Goal: $128,500 (for all equipment)
