Mercury Medical will donate its NeoTee T-Piece Resuscitators to the humanitarian organization Neonatologists for Africa, according to a company news release.
Neonatologists for Africa (NFA) is a newly established non-governmental organization (NGO) that aims to fundamentally change the approach, equipment, and treatment of newborns in the first minute of their life – the Golden Minute – in target countries in Africa. NFA’s goal is to significantly reduce the morbidity and mortality rates among this population.
The NeoTee is the first disposable infant T-piece resuscitator with a built-in manometer and optional pressure relief override.
Mercury’s President and CEO, John M. Gargaro M.D. states, “Mercury Medical is proud to donate Neo-Tee® Disposable Infant T-Piece Resuscitators to Neonatologists for Africa as we believe that our mutual vision is focused on saving lives and the Neonatologists for Africa missionary work does just that. Neo-Tee can be used to effectively treat newborns in the first minute of their life (the Golden Minute). It is a privilege to be able to provide this support.”
