The hospital in Ternopil’ received an operating table and sterilization equipment
The NGO Techiia Foundation purchased a modern operating table, a steam sterilizer, and a caulking machine for the Ternopil Regional Clinical Psychoneurological Hospital. The total cost of medical equipment is over UAH 1.5 million. It will save the lives of more than 200 patients every year.
The SERENADA operating table with a 5-section tabletop helps to safely position the patient during a wide range of operations. It can be used in general surgery, urology, neurosurgery, traumatology, and other surgical directions. It will also come in handy during operations using X-ray machines.
In addition to the convenience for doctors, it provides patients with comfort thanks to a mattress with a memory feature and a large set of adjustments in different planes. All this makes it possible to carry out extremely complex surgical interventions.
"Thanks to the new operating table, we will be able to provide highly specialized neurosurgical care to stroke patients. After all, it makes it possible to use neurosurgical interventions in case of ischemic stroke and brain hemorrhage. The table allows for safe and high-quality interventions," says Oleksiy Leontiev, Head of the neurosurgical department of the Ternopil Regional Clinical Psychoneurological Hospital.
By the way, Oleksiy Leontiev took this position a month and a half ago. Previously, he headed a similar department in the regional hospital in Kherson. In July, he managed to leave the occupied city and had to travel more than 7,000 km to return to Ukraine. When he saw the medical equipment at the Ternopil Regional Clinical Psychoneurological Hospital, he decided to stay and work there. But still, he plans to return to his native Kherson later on.
In addition to the operating table, the Techiia Foundation donated to the hospital a steam sterilizer and a QUICKSEAL sealing machine, which are necessary for the sterilization and storage of medical instruments.
Since the beginning of russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Techiia Foundation has not stopped the "Get well soon!" project. Within this project, in 2022, 5 Ukrainian hospitals in the cities of Ternopil’, Kam'ianske, Cherkasy, Kropyvnytskyi, and Lviv received new equipment. The total cost of assistance is more than UAH 5 million.
