Video images of operations will be a lot clearer following donation of two flat screen television sets by to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
The donation from the online retailer includes two new Panasonic flat panel LCD TVs and a new DVD recorder.
The television and recording equipment will be used by the Purfusion unit at the hospital, which operates the heart/lung bypass machine during transplant operations, providing images for training purposes as well as post operative review.
Professor Gary Sholler, director of kids heart service, said the new equipment would make a big difference to viewing and recording operations which have become important aspects of training and ongoing patient care.
General manager of BigBrownBox, Steve Urquhart, said his company was pleased to have an opportunity to see its equipment used in such a positive way.
BigBrownBox, a national online retailer of white goods and electronic equipment and appliances, is a subsidiary of the ASX listed Thorn Group, which also owns the national retail and financial services chain Radio Rentals.
