The Humane Society of South Mississippi has performed over 80,000 spay/neuter surgeries since opening in 2006. Much of the equipment still being used in the clinic is original and is showing its age. HSSM is devoted to saving more lives through spay/neuter but is in desperate need of 2 new Pulse Oximeters to monitor the 40-80 animals who undergo this lifesaving surgery each day. HSSM is in dire need of this vital equipment to keep each of our 4-legged patients safe during surgery.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
HSSM is in dire need of 2 Pulse Oximeters to replace the ones that are currently being used in our Spay/Neuter Clinic.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project will ensure the safety of our 4-legged patients while under anesthesia by monitoring their blood oxygen levels during surgery.
Potential Long Term Impact
The long-term impact will increase our capacity to provide spay/neuter surgery by improving efficiency. The Pulse Oximeters have the potential to monitor and save 20,000 patients each.
