Sometimes the required action to save lifes may not necessiate the one to be a Doctor.Collaborating in joint efforts to make the Doctors to able to save lives by making them easily access to the correct equipments inside the ICU.The most disadvantages of old technology ICU equıpments such as monitors,and ventilators and incubators is very few funtions being available and notifications of these signals when abnomalities begin on the patients readings are too late to able Rapid Alert team to intervene right on time.Morbidity rates of ICU patience unfortunately are higher.Where as new equipments alert the Rapid Alert team much earlier prior to abnomalities are reached.They have much more functions that can be measured and monitored and intervened for safer low risk of recovery perıod Cukurova University Hospital having built in the 1980 s as the regional hospital has had a succesfull education and provided succesfull healthcare services to the community totaling a population of 15 milliion.However the existing 33 years old tehnology which the ICU is equipped with can no longer provide the quality healthcare equipments of today can supply.Therefore medical ventilator to mechanically move breatheable air into and out of the lungs, to provide the mechanism of breathing for a patient who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently.In its simplest form, a modern positive pressure ventilator consists of a compressible air reservoir or turbine, air and oxygen supplies, a set of valves and tubes, and a disposable or reusable "patient circuit". The air reservoir is pneumatically compressed several times a minute to deliver room-air, or in most cases, an air/oxygen mixture to the patient. If a turbine is used, the turbine pushes air through the ventilator, with a flow valve adjusting pressure to meet patient-specific parameters. When overpressure is released, the patient will exhale passively due to the lungs' elasticity, the exhaled air being released usually through a one-way valve within the patient circuit called the patient manifold. The oxygen content of the inspired gas can be set from 21 percent (ambient air) to 100 percent (pure oxygen). Pressure and flow characteristics can be set mechanically or electronically.
The required up date technology ventilators areequipped with monitoring and alarm systems for patient-related parameters (e.g. pressure, volume, and flow) and ventilator function (e.g. air leakage, power failure, mechanical failure), backup batteries, oxygen tanks, and remote control. New tech ventilators use advantageous computer-controlled turbopump.
Modern ventilators are electronically controlled by a small embedded system to allow exact adaptation of pressure and flow characteristics to an individual patient's needs. Fine-tuned ventilator settings also serve to make ventilation more tolerable and comfortable for the patient. Rapid Alert team ventilator therapists are responsible for tuning these settings while biomedical technologists are responsible for the maintenance
This project is "Completed". This means the project has been implemented and the report was accepted by The Rotary Foundation. The project will stay listed on this website as a testimony of the achievements of the project partners.
Project listed for the 2016-17 Rotary Year.

DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
