Currently patients with life threatening illness or injury, who are on life support and require an MRI, cannot have an MRI without a specific type of life support ventilatory system which is not readily available.

As the MRI cannot be quickly undertaken, delays in diagnosis and treatment can occur.

The provision of MRI Compatible Transport Ventilator will enable patients to be able to expedite to an MRI and ensure treatment and diagnosis is undertaken quickly.

The main target group is all critically ill patients who require an MRI admitted in our facility or come from other smaller sites such as Bellingen, Macksville and Dorrigo.
