Exeter Volunteer Fire Department Invests in New Equipment

The Exeter Volunteer Fire Department recently invested in a Casmed monitor for the Rescue Unit.  It will monitor Blood pressure, Temperature and Oxygen levels and the responders can set it to cycle and monitor every five minutes.  Rescue Captain Hope Androyna explained, “Before we had to carry three bags of equipment and this way we can carry in one bag.”
Another benefit of the new equipment is that it is capable of plugging into a monitor at the Emergency Room and printing out the stats from the patient.
