ICMC - Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation finances an ultrasound device for mother-and-child clinic in Prague

Again, the Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation is supporting the Institute for Care of Mother and Child (ICMC) in Prague which is the biggest medical facility specializing in prenatal medicine in the Czech Republic, and is famous for its exceptional infant care.

Especially crucial to the survival of preterm infants of less than 1,000 grams is their breathing, which is why the Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation already has financed a new respirator in 2013 which significantly improves the lung function of premature infants and reduces the risk of respiration-induced lung damage.

This year the support will be continued with a new ultrasound device. This device was purchased together with computer technology which will be used to archive and analyze the data obtained during the intrauterine surgery. The ultrasound device will be used to control movements in the uterus during a surgery.  In selected pregnancy complications, intrauterine interventions can solve the ongoing pathology and prevent intrauterine fetal death or significantly delay the birth of an immature fetus.

This latest financial support represents a continuation of the long-term collaboration between Sixt Czech Republic and the ICMC.
