at Deborah Heart and Lung Center


Below are some of the items we have placed on our wish list.
  If you would like to donate funds for one, or several items on this list,
please contact the Deborah Foundation at 609-893-0200.

Thank you for your kind consideration!

Anesthesiology - Total Needed - $253,000

Hemodynamic Monitors - $26,000 each (7 needed) 
(These monitors provide continuous monitoring of patient's fluid optimization and tissue oxygenation)

Anesthesia Machine - $60,000 each (1 needed)
(Provides an accurate and continuous supply of medical gases, mixed with a concentration of anesthetic vapor and deliver this to the patient at a safe pressure flow during surgical procedures)

Bronchoscopes - $14,000 (2 needed)
(Long flexible Fiberoptic instruments used to visualize the airways of the lungs. This piece of equipment can be used to diagnose and/or treat a lung condition.)

Fiberoptic Laryngoscope - $16,000 (1 needed)

 The Patsourakos Surgical Suite
Operating Rooms - Total Needed - $295,000

Endoscopic Vein Harvesting Equipment - $88,000 each (1 needed) 
(This equipment is used for Endoscopic vessel harvesting (EHV), which is a surgical technique that may be used in conjunction with coronary artery bypass surgery.)

Surgical Lights - $65,000 each (2 needed)
(These specialized surgical lights assist medical personnel during a surgical procedure by illuminating an area of the patient. Surgical lights now use LED technology which provides cooler, long lasting light that reduces energy consumption over traditional surgical lighting.)

Bariatric Surgical Instruments - $23,000 each (1 needed)
(Specialized surgical instruments used during a Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) which includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity. Weight loss is achieved by surgically reducing the size of the stomach.)

 Ultrasound Machine - $62,000 each (1 needed)
(Ultrasonic scanning affords the physician profiles of arteries and veins throughout the body to diagnose obstructions, occlusions and disease by means of a 2-D and 3-D real time image. Ultrasound machines are used for more than 90% of the vascular surgeries performed at Deborah.)

Respiratory Care Services -Total Needed - $30,000

Ventilators  - $370,000 each (10 needed $37,000)
(Provides temporary respiratory support or assistance to patients who cannot breath on their own or who require assistance to maintain adequate ventilation because of illness, trauma or congenital defects.)

Pulse Oximeter - $14,500 each (1 needed)
(Probe is used to diagnose and sample suspicious areas in the lungs and periphery of the lungs. The probe can obtain images of the tissue in question, allowing the physician to assess any lesions and perform a biopsy if needed.)

Transport Ventilators - $12,000 (2 needed $6,000 ea)
(A battery operated unit that helps manage high-acuity patients during transport throughout the Center with continuous ventilation.)

Perfusion - Total Needed $375,000

Heart and Lung Machine - $125,000 each (3 needed)
(Used when cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is performed. During open heart surgery a heart and lung machine temporarily takes over the function of the heart and lungs by maintaining the circulation of blood and the oxygen content of the patient's body.)

Catheterization Laboratory - Total Needed

Physiological Recording System w/contrast injector
- $525,000 (1 needed)
(Mobile device that infuses various doses of radiographic dye during catheterization procedure to enhance the visibility of the vascular system.)
