Project Description

Funds raised towards this project will help with the purchase of three new Perilynx Foetal Fibronectin Systems for the Pathology unit at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital and Royal Hampshire County Hospital delivery units.
The test that clinicians can run on these devices will rule in or out whether an expectant mum will go into labour in the next 7 days (in addition to other indicators). By doing this the Trust can either safely send mum-to-be home with community support or admit and immediately start preventions and/or treatment to improve the baby’s lungs before birth.
This would not only improve the medical outcome on mum and planning treatment, but the mental well being also benefits. Knowing that you are not going into early labour will reduce stress levels which can cause issues in late pregnancy themselves. This is especially important to those with pregnancy complications or previous history of premature birth.
