(West Plains) – The Women with Heart Committee recently presented a $9,000 check to the Ozarks Medical Center Cardiac Step-down Unit to go toward the purchase of new cardiac monitoring equipment.

The funds were raised at a Here’s to Your Heart luncheon, which was held in February and attended by more than 80 people. The luncheon was hosted by Women with Heart, a giving circle of the Community Foundation of the Ozarks.

The new equipment is an invasive hemodynamic monitor, which provides continuous monitoring of the movement of blood and the pressures being exerted in the veins, arteries, and chambers of the heart, which allows continuous assessment of the status of critically ill patients and their response to ongoing therapy. This provides information for precise diagnosis and prompt correction of a problem.
