Al Jisr Foundation has handed over advanced cardiac simulation training devices to the National Heart Centre at The Royal Hospital, besides constructing a corridor connecting the outpatient clinics in the centre to the main building of the hospital.
The handover ceremony was held in the presence of Dr Qasim bin Ahmed al Salmi, director general of the Hospital, Dina al Khalili, head of Al Jisr Foundation, and a number of health and administrative staff of the centre. Dr Faiza al Kindi, assistant director at the centre, informed that the equipment include advanced realistic training manikins that contain accurate sensors for the main vital signs of the body, including heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen concentration in the body.
The equipment will help train medical groups in dealing with critical and intermediate cardiac cases in a realistic yet simulated environment.
The manikins will be used to train health workers and patients’ families on cardiovascular resuscitation.
The corridor connecting the outpatient clinics of the centre to the main building of the hospital will facilitate easy movement of medical staff and patients.
Dr Salmi praised the gesture saying it demonstrates the unified efforts between the public and private sectors for the advancement of society in various fields.
