MANIKINS FOR SARAWAK HEART CENTRE
The Sarawak Heart Foundation has donated RM70,860 worth of manikins for Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) courses in Sarawak Heart Foundation.
With the manikins, the Heart Centre can now conduct its own training on the two courses without having to depend on the Sarawak General Hospital for both the manikins and manpower.
The Sarawak Heart Centre Resuscitation Society was recently formed, led by Emergency Department and Cardiothoracic, Anaesthesiology and Perfusion Department.
BLS and ACLS are fundamental courses essential for resuscitation training for medical personnel in the hospital.
Part of the donation was contributed by Sarawak Badan Amal Tenaga Isteri-Isteri (SABATI).
Board Trustee of the Foundation YB Datuk Amar Hajah Jamilah Binti Haji Anu handed over the manikins to Chairman of Sarawak Heart Centre Resuscitation Society at the Sarawak Heart Centre on 9 June 2018. Also present were other Board Trustees YB Datuk Prof. Dr Sim Kui Hian and Dato Anne Teng and medical personnel of the Centre.
