The PANDA One provides intensive care transport and highly specialized care for critically ill neonatal and pediatric patients in Michigan, nearby states and at hospitals in Windsor and Leamington who need immediate surgical or advanced medical care in Michigan. The new defibrillator can re-start a child’s heart and monitor other vital signs.
“We’re not just helping Windsor, we’re not just helping Leamington, we’re helping everyone with this machine,” said Anita Imperioli, founder of In Honour of the Ones We Love, an organization supporting cancer patients. “It’s helping all our children.”
Imperioli said the charities partnered up to purchase the unit with funds raised through their annual cross-border golf tournaments.
