The Hits / NewstalkZB Fundraising for Child Health

Premature Anne

The Hits and Newstalk ZB are aiming to raise $23,000 for a valuable piece of equipment for the Neonatal Service at Christchurch Women's Hospital. 

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) cares for babies from the entire Canterbury region, as well as South Canterbury and West Coast babies that are 35 weeks old and under.

The first 10 minutes is critical for a preterm newborn. Neonates are at the greatest risk and require specialized care. When complications arise, a highly skilled team of healthcare professionals must be prepared to deliver quality care.

Laerdal's Premature Anne is a realistically proportioned 25-week preterm manikin designed for healthcare professionals to train in the care and resuscitation of preterm infants.

Premature Anne is designed to deliver realistic experiences to help save the lives of preterm babies. 

Canterbury's Neonatal Service

The Neonatal Service provides 24-hour care for newborn babies with a variety of special needs. This includes prematurity, surgery, congenital abnormalities and babies who may have been compromised at birth.

There are 11 intensive cots and 30 special care cots, and approximately 900-1000 babies a year admitted to NICU.

This an opportunity for you to support the healthcare professionals who care for our tiniest patients, so please...
