You have the power to change lives

Charles' generous contribution has made the management of cardiac anaesthetics a much better experience for doctors, staff and patients at Cabrini.

In March this year, loyal Cabrini Foundation supporter Charles Tegner, generously supported our fundraising appeal for the purchase of the Transoesophageal Echocardiogram (TOE) probe. Charles’ generous donation enabled Cabrini to purchase one TOE ultrasound and our donor community came together to raise enough to purchase a second machine.

The impact for patients

  • Helps stop delays in care With the two new TOE probes available for doctors, it has helped stop delays in care. They are used more than 10 times every single day for a wide range of cardiac procedures in both the operating theatres and cardiac catheter labs, as well as for heart function testing during diagnosis of cardiac disease.
  • Helps provide sharper, clearer images of the heart
  • The new probes provide sharper and clearer images, which improves the efficiency and effectiveness during heart functionality assessments. These probes ensure our cardiologists are using the best technology available to diagnose and treat heart conditions and disease.

Without these probes our cardiac surgeons performing open heart surgery would be unable to examine heart functionality during the procedure. This results in fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and more lives saved.

On behalf of the doctors, nurses, patients, researchers, volunteers and staff, the Cabrini Foundation team sincerely thank Charles and everybody else who donated for their ongoing support of our work.
