Provide Vietnamese Nurses with Medical Equipment



Vital medical equipment like blood pressure cuffs are often not available to doctors and nurses in Vietnam to assess their littlest patients. Help provide dedicated health care professionals with the tools needed to properly care for their patients in the NICU and ICU at Hue Central Hospital and the National Pediatric Hospital. MEDRIX will hand-deliver 60 blood pressure cuffs to our partners in Vietnam to use for training and more accurate assessment of little patients.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Health care professionals in Vietnam are passionate and dedicated to changing lives in their communities. A lack of resources, including medical equipment, hinders their mission to care for their patients in a sustainable and effective way. There is an evident lack of blood pressure cuffs in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units and Intensive Care Units in both the National Pediatric Hospital and Hue Central Hospital, both located in Hue, Vietnam. As a result, little patients can be misdiagnosed.

How will this project solve this problem?

Useful and necessary medical equipment such as blood pressure cuffs are often unavailable in Vietnam, forcing young patients, especially infants, to go without potentially life-saving diagnosis and care. MEDRIX will personally deliver infant and pediatric blood pressure cuffs to Hue Central Hospital and the National Pediatric Hospital to be used in their NICU and ICU areas. As a result, countless young lives that come through the hospital will be properly diagnosed and cared for with confidence.

Potential Long Term Impact

MEDRIX is committed to providing Vietnamese health care professionals with the skills and tools needed to successfully and effectively care for their patients. Not only will countless young patients receive proper diagnosis leading to appropriate care, but ultimately hundreds of dedicated doctors and nurses will learn to properly assess patients using their new knowledge of blood pressure cuffs. Misdiagnosis will exponentially decrease when partnered with increased knowledge of childhood illness
