It's the seventh edition of the nationwide CPR for Schools competition and all schools actively taking part in our CPR for Schools educational programme are welcome to participate.
Buying 3147 pieces of equipment for kids
Today marks the start of the three-day Open Tender - an extended presentation of medical equipment and negotiations with manufacturers of the equipment. The equipment we aim to buy will be donated to paediatric clinics in the country. The objective of 49th Open Tender is to negotiate the best prices and maintenance with the manufacturers. This time we will be buying devices helping in the diagnostic process and well as equipment which will considerably improve the comfort of parents and guardians who accompany children in hospitals.
At the end of the negotiation process, we aim to buy 3147 pieces of equipment:
- ultrasound machines (basic) - 61
- ultrasound machines (premium) - 7
- ultrasound machines (cardiovascular) - 7
- stationary x-ray machines - 2
- portable x-ray machines - 3
- hospital beds for children (large) - 343
- hospital beds for young adults - 692
- hospital beds for children (infant beds) - 560
- cots for newborns - 30
- chairs for parents /guardians - 438
- cardiac monitors - 177
- infusion pumps - 145
- syringe pumps - 321
- pulse oximeters - 209
- ABPM pressure holters - 30
- ECG machines - 53
- blood vessel scanners - 69
We might buy more or fewer pieces of equipment depending on the effect of our negotiations with the manufacturers. We can either decide to buy more pieces of equipment if we manage to negotiate favourable prices. Failing to do so, we might decide to purchase the equipment at a different time.
The Grand Finale is now a thing of past, but we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, help, and generosity during this year's charitable collection.
We aim to deliver colourful plaques to primary schools taking part in our CPR for Schools educational programme. We think it's a great way to acknowledge schools which go the extra mile to educate their pupils.
