Giving is the best medicine...
Efforts are underway to collect medical supplies for our journey before we leave in May. Delek Hospital, in Dharamsala, is an all-volunteer run facility and could always use extra surgical masks, sterile gloves or glucometers. Here is a link to the Delek Hospital web site. Look on the right column of that web site for history and news about the hospital.
With Pitt County Memorial Hospital (not to mention legions of doctors' offices) a mere stonesthrow away from ECU's Brody School of Medicine, we thought it fitting to ask area medical centers for supplies that would be both transportable and customs-friendly.
Here's the list! Leave a comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before May 13 if you can give!
• ECG Machine (portable)
• Oxygen saturation monitor
• Fetal heart doppler
• Nebuliser machine
• Pnenmothorax chest drain set
• Pulse oximeter
• Glucometer one touch
• Unsterile gloves 6 and a half or 7 inches
• Surgical masks (good quality)
• Ambu bag -adult 1 piece
