Portable Echocardiograph





History Logs

Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Uruguay

Location: Aguada

Total Budget: $40,000

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health

In the children's cardiology clinic of the Pereira Rossell Hospital, the most vulnerable population is attended to and 17% of the children of our country are born. The portable echocardiograph would allow the diagnosis and detection of children with congenital heart disease. Having the best technology (which today does not have it) would allow monitoring of these cases and this would lead to a quantum and qualitative jump fundamental for children in our country. The fact that it is portable allows studies to children in delicate condition without the need to move them. It is estimated that it could be used in more than 2000 cases per year.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
