New Kit – Syringe Driver

Syringe Driver

Following a successful funding application, we have purchased our first medical syringe driver.

Thanks to a grant from the Manchester Guardian Society, we have bought a Micrel Syringe Pump which we will use to treat patients who might have suffered a cardiac arrest or have received a pre-hospital anaesthetic from the team.

The equipment allows a steady stream of medication to be deliever to the patient and allows our clinicians to perform other clinical interventions if needed.

The syringe driver has been placed on our Manchester based rapid response vehicle, ready to use when the time comes.

Expansion of our equipment all comes from the generosity of our supporters, lottery players, grants and trusts.

We have to raise £15,000 per annum to keep the team operational with new purchases like this and new responders costing more on top of our core running costs.
