TROY, N.Y. – Seton Health/St. Mary’s Hospital recently added a new Zoll biphasic defibrillator to its outpatient surgical services department. The life-saving piece of equipment was purchased from funds raised and donated by the Seton Health Auxiliary.
The Zoll biphasic defibrillator is the latest technology for resuscitating patients who are in need of defibrillation, pacing and cardioversion for survival during life-threatening emergencies. The defibrillator delivers electrical energy to the heart using the lowest possible energy, minimizing damage to the heart muscle.
Mary Kate Robinson, Fran Hyde and Franceen Shaughnessy, members of the Seton Health Auxiliary, presented the defibrillator to the nursing staff of Seton Health’s outpatient surgical services.
The Seton Health Auxiliary is a non-profit organization in support of the mission of Seton Health/St. Mary’s Hospital. Founded in 1907, the Auxiliary has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to assist the hospital in attaining its goals. The Auxiliary operates the Gift Gallery, the hospital’s gift shop and sponsors various events in service to the community.
