In the Fall of 2015, SAMA has donated a new ECG to the Pediatric Department of hospital in Loznica. Dr. Mirko Mrdjen contacted SAMA again in May, 2017 asking SAMA to donate a new defibrillator. Here is the email that SAMA received from Dr. Mrdjen:
We decided to collect the funds for new defibrillator during our 2nd Annual SAMA Walk in Toronto. After money was collected, we engaged with Trivax, purchased the new defibrillator and in early August delivered it to hospital in Loznica.
August 9th, 2018: New defibrillator delivered to Hospital in Loznica
New Nihon-Kohden 1521K defibrillator with pads for children was delivered to Dr Mirko Mrdjen at the Hospital in Loznica. Money for this donation was collected by SAMA-Canada during the 2nd Annual SAMA Walk in Toronto. Again many thanks to all who contributed to this small but beautiful project!
ECG Donation – January 2016
Dr Mirko Mrdjen, child cardiologist and lead at the Department for Pediatric Cardiology at Loznica Hospital, contacted SAMA in early September 2015 expressing the need for a new EKG machine. The Hospital received various donations in the past, but the Pediatric Cardiology department was in urgent need of a new EKG machine. The department had two old EKG machines that were often out of order. After discussions with Dr. Mrdjen, it was jointly determined that the right machine is the Schiller AT-102 Plus.
