Project Definition

The project is to establish a four bed ICU in the Department of Pediatric Oncology at the Cancer Hospital of Ho Chi Minh City. The hospital is the only facility available in the southern half of the country to treat children with cancer. At present, the hospital has no pediatric ICU facility. The incidence of children with certain childhood cancers is higher than in any other regional Asian countries, which doctors attribute in part to gene disorders resulting from the use of dioxins (Agent Orange) during the Vietnam War with the USA.

ICU (Intensive Care Unit)
includes vitals monitor, ventilator, bed, injection pump, respirator, aspirators, and infusion pump.
