Alaris PK Syringe Pump:

(QHC Minor Surgery Clinic – 1 needed @ $6,618)

(TMH Operating Room – 2 needed @ $5,089 = $10,179)

The Alaris PK syringe pump offers a choice of models with Plasma and Effect Site targeting capability, and there are also two models offered for children. It has been developed in cooperation with leading European anesthesiologists. The set up of this machine is the same with every use, and any unnecessary features can easily be disabled. Only relevant information is shown, and all set up parameters are displayed on one screen. A syringe pump is a different type of infusion delivery device. Instead of drawing fluid from an infusion bag, intravenous medications are drawn into a syringe and installed into the device.

  • Easy switch between TIVA and TCI modes, back and forth
    • TIVA – Total Intravenous Anesthesia
    • TCI – Target Controlled Infusion

Allen bariatric yellow fin stirrups:

(TMH Operating Room – 1 needed @ $15,258)

The Allen bariatric Yellofins Stirrup enables safe and easy positioning while providing enhanced surgical site access. They allow for easy adjustment in patients for up to 350lbs (159kg), while maintaining the sterile field. The boot is extended along its lateral side, and is padded on the interior. The purpose of this fin is to cover and protect the head of the fibula and the peroneal nerve.

  • Fibula – Calf bone, located on the lateral side of the tibia, which is connected above an below. It is the smaller of the two bones and in proportion to its length, the slenderest of all the long bones.
  • Peroneal Nerve – The nerve in the lower leg, sometimes referred to as the common fibular nerve, that provides sensation over the posterolateral part of the leg and the knee joint.

The boot is also self-adjusting to minimize pressure on the calf when moving the stirrup, and the pad completely encapsulates the foot.

IV infusion pumps:


(BGH Med Day Care – 8 needed @ $3,163 = $25,301)

(TMH Day Surg. Pre & Post Op. – 2 needed @ $3,163 = $6,325)

An infusion pump draws fluid from a standard bag of intravenous fluid and controls the rate of flow. It provides accurate and continuous therapy. It can use any size bag of intravenous fluid, so it can be used to deliver fluids at either a very slow or very fast infusion rate.

Zoll Defib R series:


(TMH Emergency – 1 needed @ $20,047)

The R Series system is indicated for defibrillation on victims of cardiac arrest where there is apparent lack of circulation as indicated by; unconsciousness, absence of breathing or absence of pulse. In the Manual Mode, it is indicated for synchronized cardioversion of certain atrial or ventricular arrhythmias. It is also indicated to provide visual and audio feedback via CPR Help feature, which is designed to encourage rescuers to preform chest compressions at the AHA/ERC recommended depth and rate of 2 inches (5cm) and 100 compressions per minute. There is no need to disconnect the electrodes or paddles, or get additional test equipment to test shock delivery. This system will even detect missing or dried-out electrodes and provide a printed or electronic log.

Infusion Pumps:


(QHC Minor Surgery Clinic – 1 needed @ $3,163)

An infusion pump is a medical device that delivers fluids, such as nutrients and medications into a patient’s body in controlled amounts. Infusion pumps are in widespread use due to their medical effectiveness and importance. Infusion pumps offer significant advantages over manual administration of fluids, including the ability to deliver fluids at precisely programmed rates or automated intervals. Due to the fact infusion pumps are frequently used to administer critical fluids, including high-risk medications, pump failures can have significant implications for patient safety. Many infusion pumps are equipped with safety features; such as alarms or other operator alerts that are intended to activate in the event of a problem.

Single channel IV pumps:


(TMH Emergency – 26 needed @ $3,163 = $82,229)

Single channel IV pumps are used for continuous or intermittent delivery of infusion needs. A single channel pump has just one reservoir that provides a single fluid medication or nutrient over a longer period of time to the patient. There is a wide variety of administration sets offered, and the unique flow of regulator has a flow control device that minimizes accidental free-flow when the set is removed from the instrument.

IV pumps:


(TMH Inpatient Unit – 27 needed @ $3,163 = $85,392)

Infusion pumps may be capable of delivering fluids in large or small amounts, and be also used to deliver nutrients and medications – such as insulin or other hormones, antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs and pain relievers. They deliver measured amounts of fluids into the bloodstream over a specific period of time.

Replace Defibrillator with Heartstart XL:


(TMH Inpatient Unit – 1 needed @ $27,047)

The user interface is designed to be clear and uncluttered, helping worker’s respond quickly and confidently. There is the ability to switch between AED mode and manual mode, to make it possible for all levels of trained responders to use the Heartstart XL. In AED mode, this defibrillator can defibrillate any patient, of any age without using any special, additional accessories. An active visual indicator show the defibrillator has power and is ready to use. Green front panel lights indicate AC and battery power, without having to check if anything is connected or needs power.

Ultrasound Machine:


(TMH Ultrasound – 1 needed @ $173,213)

An ultrasound machine makes images so that organs inside the body can be examined. The machine sends out high-frequency sound waves, which reflect off body structures. A computer receives the waves and uses them to create a picture. An ultrasound allows doctors to see problems with organs, vessels and tissues without needing to make an incision. This allows patients to remain at home most of the time, rather than being in the hospital over a few nights. It also allows surgeons to spend more time on each surgery they already have.

Centrella Med/Surg Bed:


(QHC Nursing Educ. – 4 needed @ $10,076 = $42,822)

Medical beds are always needed for patients to lay on and/or sleep on in hospitals. Centrella Med/Surg beds are adjustable to fit the patients needs, and are designed with safety and comfort in mind. This bed features many important patient safety, and patient satisfaction measures.

Patient Safety:

  • Fall Prevention
  • Pressure Injury Reduction
  • Continuous heart rate and respiratory rate monitoring

Patient Satisfaction:

  • Increased comfort
  • Enhanced Patient Experience
  • Improved Communication
