A life saving ambulance that will be used for transportation of dying children who need urgently oxygen and blood transfusion. This ambulance will be also be in use to transport and give first aid to mothers in labour pain, mothers with complications after giving birth, and other major urgent maternity surgical procedures. This ambulance will be able to have a small laboratory and blood cross-matching equipment for urgent blood transfusion. The ambulance will be operated by doctors and nursers.
Hundreds of children and new mothers loose their lives because there is no any emergency transportation to the hospital. Whisper's children's hospital and maternity transport their critically sick patients for free, in their only personal car, that is very unsuitable for critically sick patients, who are supported on oxygen, and sometimes very little can be done during resustitation.
Whisper's Emergency Ambulance will allow our medical team provide life-saving resuscitation of patients right from the ambulance during its often very long journey to the hospital. Mothers who had serious complication during birth delivery, will be able to get safely to the hospital and given all necessary medical treatment that starts right from the ambulance. Dying anaemic children will be able to be blood transfused right from the ambulance.
Whisper will be transporting patients free of charge. Whisper will start something that no other medical centre in Uganda or hospital does, and it is to provide a free accident and emergency transportation to the patients in critical stage. Our ambulance will help minimise the death rate of children and mothers, who would have arrived too late and maximise the chances to save lives of dying newborn babies, anaemic children and new mothers.
