Spire St Anthony’s Hospital is donating two cardiopulmonary bypass machines to the Family Hospital, Ghana and the International Hospital of Uganda where our surgical RMO, Dr Clement Akomea-Agyin works. The machines work by mimicking the function of the heart and lungs during open heart surgery, allowing the heart to be stopped while the body is kept alive. This allows the surgeon to work on a bloodless, still heart. The machines were shipped and airlifted to their new homes on Saturday 16 February, where they will continue to allow medical teams to perform lifesaving procedures including correction of 'hole in heart', valve repair and replacement and coronary artery bypass surgery.
