Kempsey Community Health Centre Palliative Care Oxygen Concentrator
Steve Thomas from the Friends of the Hastings Cancer Trust, met with Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Specialist Vicki Hope from the Kempsey Community Health Center to see the mobile oxygen concentrator in action.
The unit was bought with the support of a Hastings Cancer Trust Grant and is one of a number of units currently being used by patients in their homes while under the care of Nurse Vicki Hope.
Vicki said when a patient has been assessed as having poor lung function the unit, which runs of a standard 240v power point, can be deployed easily to the home making life a little more comfortable for patients suffering from shortness of breath.
