A children’s charity and a telecommunications company have united to donate a nearly $35,000 resuscitation unit for infants to a Pilbara hospital.

The Humpty Dumpty Foundation and Vocus announced on November 29 the donation of a Panda Resuscitation Warmer valued at $34,290 to Karratha Health Campus.

The resuscitation unit provides infants with a purpose-built examination bed and includes a warmer as well as special monitoring devices.

It can be stocked with other smaller equipment and provides oxygen needed for resuscitation as well as treating critically ill babies.

Vocus enterprise and government chief executive Andrew Wildblood said technology can make a huge difference and help change lives.

Humpty Dumpty Foundation founder Paul Francis said it was important to continue to support hospitals and health services across the country including in rural and remote areas.
