Community Christmas Card

Nov 20, 2017 12 a.m. - Dec 19, 2017 11:59 p.m.

Where:

UH Geneva Medical Center

Description:

We invite you to make a donation to the annual Community Christmas Card which purchases lifesaving equipment at UH Geneva Medical Center. The names of donors who make a gift by Tuesday, December 19 will be published in the local Star Beacon newspaper.

Contributions to the Community Christmas Card will purchase ClearSight noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring. This system utilizes finger cuff technology for noninvasive continuous blood pressure, cardiac output and other advanced hemodynamic parameters. In conjunction with the EV1000 clinical platform – previously purchased by the Christmas Card Fund in 2012 – the ClearSight system provides visual hemodynamic information directly to nurses and physicians, enabling them to better manage critically ill patients without the placement of invasive catheters. These leading-edge tools enhance both patient comfort and safety.

Since 1970, Geneva area community members have contributed more than $300,000 to the Community Christmas Card Fund, which benefits the critical care unit at UH Geneva Medical Center. In 2016, donations totaled a record-setting $14,000 to purchase Capnoflex capnography modules, technology that helps with the continuous monitoring of carbon dioxide levels for patients requiring ventilation.
