Leading-edge medical technology not only advances the practice of medicine, but it impacts the care Kadlec is able to deliver to our patients. It also helps us attract and retain the best and brightest medical talent to care for our patients. Transformational giving spanning the hospital's key service lines not only impacts our patients now, it is also an investment in critical medical care into the future.
Cardiovascular care is lifesaving care. Securing additional electrocardiogram (EKG) machines provides Kadlec with important tools for diagnosis and treatment of various cardiac diseases.
ARCTIC SUN TEMPERATURE COOLING SYSTEM
Our critical care specialists use Arctic Sun to lower the body temperature of patients who have suffered cardiac arrest, decreasing inflammation and limiting permanent brain damage. Kadlec has been saving lives with Arctic Sun for a number of years. Another unit will be well utilized.
PORTABLE X-RAY SYSTEM
The new portable X-ray systems are high speed and low dose, providing instant bedside imaging. A replacement for our current model would be dedicated to the Intensive Care Units.
