£2,862 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 107 people in 12 months
On the 15th September we will be aiming to cycle from Brighton to Walsall Manor Hospital.....200 miles in one day!

We will be raising funds for the Chemotherapy ward at the Manor hospital in the hope of raising enough funds to allow them to purchase an Accuvein machine.  The reason behind this is very close to home for one of our group and although their story ended well others are not so lucky.

Starting an IV is a difficult skill requiring considerable practice. On average, it takes between two to three attempts to establish a patent peripheral IV site and it’s been reported that difficult IV access occurs in patients 10% to 30% of the time

On patients with difficult venous access, finding a vein is challenging for even the most experienced nurse or doctor. Patients who are elderly, obese, dark-skinned, hypovolemic, have a history of IV drug use, or have chronic illness present unique problems to finding an appropriate vein to start an IV.

A difficult IV start creates frustration and anxiety for many nurses, who don’t want to cause additional discomfort and stress to the patient. Not to mention the additional time it takes to make several attempts or to find a colleague to give it a try.

Fortunately, the Accuvein machine we are looking to purchase for the Manor Hospital is a solution to alleviate these issues

Any surplus funds will be going to Birmingham Children’s hospital....again another organisation that is very close to our hearts within our friendship group 

Please dig deep and donate anything you can, no matter how small every penny really is appreciated

Thanks
