Electro Fatal (delivery) Monitor in Cambodia

Currently, the maternal morality rate in Cambodia is significantly higher than that of developed countries such as United States. This problem is mainly due to the fact that fetuses are not being monitored well and when un-monitored and complication rises, it is left untreated until it is too late. The solution is to purchase and operate a Electro Fatal Monitor to diagnose these problems.

Japan Heart

"Providing health care to areas where it is currently out of reach, wherever that may be."

The Problem

In Cambodia, there are only 24 doctors per 100,000 people, which is substantially low compared to developed countries like USA. Biggest problems is lack of medical institutions, products and education. In 2010, the maternal morality rate was 206 per 100,000 compared to 21 per 100,000 in the US. Neonatal morality rate and infant morality was 18 and 33 per 1000 respectively, whereas in the US, those numbers were as low as 4 and 6 per 1000 respectively.

The Solution

Fetal heart rate and labor pain monitor allows safer management of women's pregnancy and birth giving. By using the monitor to detect the varying labor pain over time, we can keep track of unborn child's health condition non-invasively. As a result, it would become easier to detect fetal complications such as premature separation of placenta or fetal dysfunction early enough to treat them.

Sustainability

This monitor will first be used in local health centers. One big goal Japan Heart is currently working towards is to build a hospital in Cambodia. Therefore, as long as the monitor does not break, it will continue to be used in the new hospital. By purchasing this monitor, it will significantly help improve the healthcare of pregnant women and their unborn children in Cambodia.
