2021 Red Deer Hospital Lottery proceeds will be used to support the purchase of electronic fetal monitors and other medical equipment for the Red Deer Hospital Centre and other healthcare centres in Central Alberta.

Fetal heart rates are monitored during pregnancy, labour, and birth to assess the baby’s wellbeing. Currently in our hospital, fetal heart rate tracings are captured through bedside monitors that print paper records and can only be viewed while at the machine. 

The ability to quickly review, assess, and interpret records is important.  New electronic fetal monitors have a number of features not available with the current, paper-based systems: 

Each year there are over 2,700 births at RDRHC alone, and electronic fetal monitoring is performed multiple times during pregnancy.  

Red Deer Hospital Lottery’s contribution to the purchase of new monitors will ensure additional peace of mind to labouring mothers.

About Séan McCann – 

A survivor of sexual abuse as a teenager, Séan has spent the last ten years touring North America as a musical keynote speaker, singing and sharing his story with theatre audiences, front line workers, teachers, students, patients, inmates, veterans, and anyone who has struggled with their mental health. Séan believes that music is medicine and a song is never more powerful than when it is sung with a friend.

As part of this event, the CACAC is benefiting from an
online silent art auction, operated by JRADCLIFFE  Auctioneering.

These artworks were created and curated by Kathryn Fellowsand donated to this auction in her memory by her daughter Sharon Moffat.

Watch on social media for a link to this auction, which opens on February 4th.
