The cardiac care unit at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary (RLI) has benefited from eight new patient monitors – thanks to legacy donations of nearly £90,000 left tothe hospital by five local people in their wills.

Dr Adrian Brodison, Consultant Cardiologist at the RLI, said: “These new patient monitors will expand our previous patient monitoring capabilities and help us to ensure that we deliver the highest level of safety and the appropriate management ofconditions is maintained for cardiac patients whilst they are in our care.

“ It allows intensive monitoring of patients when on the newly expanded cardiac care unit and also permits remote monitoring of patients who require this at many other locations within the hospital.”
