Rostec’s Shvabe Holding Company has dispatched Russian-made neonatal, resuscitation and anaesthetic facilities to Grenada for a state hospital in Grenada’s capital, St. George’s.
All in all, the hospital has received 14 units to replace and support respiratory functions, treat hepatitis and for other purposes.
‘Exports of Russian-made hi-tech equipment are one of Rostec’s priorities. We have a positive record of cooperation with Grenada, a country that needs our neonatal, resuscitation and anaesthetic equipment. Last year they received from us several deliveries of Shvabe equipment, and the current demand testifies to the quality and efficiency of our products,’ said Oleg Yevtushenko, Rostec’s Executive Director.
Among the units dispatched was the SLE 5000, an artificial respirator for newborns, with the TAVLAR, a breathing gas humidifier; the IDN-03, an intense therapy incubator for newborns; and the Radiant Heat – BONO, a neonatal infrared heater with phototherapy functionality. Additionally, the hospital in St. George’s is now equipped with the OFN-03, a neonatal phototherapy irradiator, and the MAIA-01, a multifunction inhalation anaesthetic device.
All equipment is compliant with international standards. A unique technology used in the SLE 5000 enables lung ventilation for patients with an extremely low body weight (300 grams and above), whereas the MAIA-01 combines artificial lung ventilation with anaesthesia and comprehensive respiratory gas monitoring.
The equipment, manufactured by E.S. Yalamov Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant, of the Shvabe Holding Company, will be assembled and adjusted in mid-May, as Rostec experts will concurrently run training sessions for hospital staff.
Similar equipment was earlier sent to hospitals and maternity homes in Tunisia and is intended for dispatch to other countries in Africa and South-East Asia, as well as to Bangladesh, Suriname and Haiti.
