With close to 1,000 cardiac surgeries to be performed in over 40 trips to 15 countries scheduled for 2012, it is going to be a challenging year for the ICHF, our volunteers and partners.  With the help of eVent Medical providing NEW ventilators to country programs around the world, ventilator related patient complications can be reduced.David Wieduwilt, ICHF Director of Biomedical/Clinical Engineering and Mrs. Lucky Heeley, Vice President of Marketing & Sales at eVent Medical, announced today that eVent Medical will continue to support the ICHF again for the coming 2012 year with much needed ventilators for neonate, infant and pediatric heart surgery.  The first shipment of Inspiration Infant LS ventilators, due to arrive this month, will be distributed to the country programs with the most immediate ventilator needs.   This is not the first year of support from event Medical.  Since 2008, Mr. Brent Chamblee, Marketing & Product Manager with eVent Medical has been providing the ICHF with Inspiration LS ventilators and supplies.  The ventilators went to support our successful efforts in our Pakistan and Honduras programs.  ICHF is very grateful for these generous donations and acknowledges the fact that we could not do what we do without the help of our partners. eVent Medical is independently owned and provides high-performance, cost-effective critical care ventilators, enabling clinicians to provide world-class ICU care.  “We are proud to provide our ventilators toward the humanitarian efforts of ICHF throughout the world.”
