PURPOSE
“With increasing cot numbers, and the potential for further improvement, we look to our friends and supporters attending this year’s 10th A Celebration of Life Gala Ball, to raise funds for a specific piece of equipment called a NIRS (Near Infrared Spectrometer).  This machine, allows measurement of blood flow in various organs including the brain and the gut. The use of this monitor will allow us to better monitor our patients, potentially detecting life-threatening disease earlier, and increasing the window of opportunity in which we can provide life-saving treatment”.  Dr Rod Hunt – Director Neonatal Medicine,  The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne.

Over 700 babies are transferred to the Newborn Intensive care Unit (NICU) at The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) annually. Over 40% of babies will undergo major surgery and over half receive artificial ventilation via mechanical respirators.  All babies are cared for by a team of specialist NICU doctors and nurses and many may also be seen by specialist doctors from the many medical disciplines available ONLY at the RCH, Melbourne. The fundraising and awareness efforts provided by A Celebration of Life via The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation is ESSENTIAL to the NICU in order to help it achieve its goal of providing the highest level of care to Victoria’s sickest babies.
