Level IIIA: caring for babies born at as few as 26 weeks of gestation

The Foundation made it possible for HMR to acquire specialized equipment and vital supplies so that the hospital’s neonatal unit could be level IIIA-certified, qualifying it to welcome babies born prematurely after as few as 26 weeks of gestation. The donation allowed for the purchase of an amplitude-integrated EEG machine that indicates whether controlled hypothermia treatment can be started in order to slow the progression of injuries to the baby’s brain, prevent lasting adverse effects and reduce the risk of death. Furthermore, the neonatal unit was also able to acquire air-oxygen mixers to resuscitate newborns, a lamp and neonatal radiant canopy warmer on stable wheels to prevent hypothermia, as well as transport mattresses to properly secure newborns during interhospital transfers.
