Tallaght Hospital is part of the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group which serves a population of over 1.2 million across seven counties. Uniquely it is also part of the Children's Hospital Group and a new satellite centre is to be built on the hospital campus as part of the new children's hospital project. 

Overview

Tallaght Hospital, Incorporating the National Children's Hospital, is one of Ireland's largest acute teaching Hospitals, providing child-health, adult, psychiatric and age-related healthcare on one site. The Voluntary Hospital has 625 beds and employs almost 3,000 staff. The Hospital is a provider of local, regional and national specialities. It is also a national urology centre, the second largest provider of dialysis services in the country and a regional orthopaedic trauma centre.

Where Your Money Goes

The Summer 99 Charity Cycle this year, is in aid of our End of Life Service.

Thank you for sponsoring one of the cyclists and/or participating in the Tallaght Hospital Summer 99 Charity Cycle. As well as a great day out for anyone that enjoys a cycle the purpose of the event is also to raise money for Tallaght Hospital, this year the beneficiary is the End of Life Service.

The funds raised by our participating cyclists will be used to purchase Advanced Haemodynamic Monitoring equipment for ICU. Advanced haemodynamic monitoring enables intensive care doctors and nurses to accurately assess and manage a patients heart and cardiovascular function during critical illness. Life threatening illness of this severity causes profound changes in a patients normal physiological function which predominantly affects the patients cardiac function and vascular system. 

During critical illness such as life threatening sepsis or cardiac failure patients require invasive cardiovascular monitoring. Basic non-invasive monitoring is not sensitive enough to respond to the rapid changes seen in organ function in critical illness. 

The introduction of advanced haemodynamic monitoring will enable detailed real-time assessment of critically ill patients cardiovascular function. The technology uses sensors placed in the patient's blood stream. Data from these sensors is analysed by computer algorithms and the resulting graphical and other outputs are evaluated by the staff in ICU in tailoring bespoke therapies to manage the patients organ dysfunction.

Use of this technology has been shown to significantly improve patient outcomes and will be a welcome step forward in our capabilities for managing critically ill patients in Tallaght Hospital Intensive Care Unit.
