The Club has purchased a piece of medical equipment, in memory of our long-time member and ex-President, Andy Hunt.
The Philips Everflo oxygen concentrator is a very useful and portable device that takes in air and removes nitrogen from it, producing an oxygen-enriched gas which can be inhaled by patients who, if unassisted, may otherwise suffer from low oxygen levels in the bloodstream.
The device was donated to Western Health, which provided invaluable support to Andy during his illness, and with this purchase, we hope that many more patients will benefit from it.
A plaque has been affixed to the device, as can be seen in the photo below.
Thank you to Annette and Nurse Emilie for helping us with the purchase.
