Supplying for Patient Transfer
B. Braun were delighted to supply infusion pumps to the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance, Ben Myer, Clinical Manager at Essex & Herts Air Ambulance said:
“EHAAT continue to support the regional and national effort to respond, not only to those with critical injury and illness, but also now to be able to transfer COVID-19 patients by road between hospitals depending on their clinical need. This is a relatively new step for us at EHAAT, especially given the sometimes complex nature of these poor patients. We always have safety at the forefront of our mind and therefore we have needed some specialist pieces of equipment that previously we have not required. There has been massive support from many suppliers, one of these being B. Braun who have now supplied us with 6 syringe pumps that will allow us to maintain hospital level care while we transfer these patients. These are sought after pieces of clinical equipment and we are extremely grateful to all their staff who are working so hard to be able to support ours and the NHS efforts to care for the patients”
#WeAreBusy because our customers are
Last week we installed new Haemodialysis machines into Queen's Hospital ICU in Romford to assist with the ongoing COVID-19 response; ensuring patients have access to critical renal care should they require it.
B. Braun Sheffield Sharks
Here at B. Braun we are very proud of our long-standing relationship with the Sheffield Sharks Basketball team who compete at elite level in the British Basketball League. Together we organise CSR programmes for school age children as part of our B. Braun B Healthy campaign.
This season has been somewhat curtailed due to the Coronavirus pandemic so Sharks' Head Coach, Atiba Lyons and good friend (but fierce on-court rival), Rob Paternostro of Leicester Riders, got together via Zoom to talk all things basketball.
Here is what they had to say (link opens in Facebook)
