Lifesaving equipment, made possible thanks to generous people like you.
VentilatorThe intensive-care ventilator helps patients breathe when they cannot do so themselves.
Zoll monitorContinuously monitors a patient's heart rhythm and can provide shocks if necessary to restore a regular heartbeat. Most patients are attached to the Zoll Monitor and their vitals are tracked throughout the flight.
IncubatorThe tiniest patients fly in the incubator provided by Wellington NICU to and from specialist care around the country. Babies as young as 24 weeks and a few hundred grams are placed in the incubator for safe passage.
