Volunteers throughout the country helped purchase the life-saving equipment

The Frenkel Emergency Medical Center has a new resuscitation or "crash" cart – a wheeled set of trays/drawers/shelves carrying medicine and equipment for use in medical emergencies – thanks to the generosity of Yad Sarah volunteers. Prior to Rosh Hashanah, Yad Sarah's management appealed to volunteers throughout the country to help purchase the cart, which cost $10,000. The crash cart, pictured above, carries the necessary equipment and medicines for treating severe and life-threatening medical conditions. The goal is to allow rapid access to resuscitation equipment and to provide prompt and immediate treatment to people in dangerous medical situations. When necessary, the equipment can be quickly brought to the patient for use by the medical staff. The contents of a crash cart vary, but typically contain the tools and drugs needed to treat a person in or near cardiac arrest, including monitors/defibrillators, suction devices, and bag valve masks (BVMs) of different sizes. They include various types of medications such as those for advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) (epinephrine, atropine, etc.). They also include first line drugs for treatment of common problems as well as drugs for rapid sequence intubation and for peripheral and central venous access. Pediatric equipment (common pediatric drugs, intubation equipment, etc.) is also a vital part of the crash cart contents. Sepideh Yom Tov, Yad Sarah's director of public relations: "The response of the Yad Sarah volunteers was amazing. Yad Sarah volunteers are a force; in addition to giving of their time, they are the first to mobilize for donations to expand our activities." The crash cart will upgrade the center's activities and will help to save lives – literally."
