Current Fundraising Project - LDI Machine
We are currently collecting donations to purchase a new LDI machine to improve the treatment of burn survivors on the Edmonton Firefighters Burn Treatment Unit at the University of Alberta Hospital.
A LDI machine is used to help support the clinical diagnosis of the depth of a burn injury. This critical piece of equipment can help diagnose the blood flow in a burn wound and the likelihood of a burn healing on it's own or the need for surgical intervention.
The current machine in use at the Edmonton Firefighter Burn Treatment Unit is outdated and requires a significant amount of time to complete a scan. During the scan time the patient must remain still with their burns exposed to be able to obtain a accurate scan. This can be difficult and uncomfortable for patients of all ages, however more so with pediatric patients. A new LDI machine would allow scans to be completed in the time it takes to take a picture and would overall improve the experience and care of patients of all ages.
Join with us and help us to reach our goal of raising $100,000.00 for this project! Donate by clicking on the button above.
