Američka vojska donirala je vrednu opremu klinici u Nišu

Klinika za Kardiohirurgiju Kliničkog centra u Nišu dobila je od Vojske SAD donaciju u medicinskim aparatima vrednu 400.000 evra koja će omogućiti duplo više kardiohirurških operacija.

Direktor Klinike za kardiohirurgiju dr Dragan Milić istakao je da je najvredniji deo donacije aparat za ekstrakorporarnu cirkulaciju koji sam košta 220.000 evra.

-To je osnovna mašina za svaku kardiohiruršku operacije. Imali smo jednu takvu mašinu a sada imamo dve tako da ćemo već od početka jula da radimo po dve kardiohirurške operacije dnevno, duplirajući naše kapacitete. Sa tom mašinom je stigao i "hiper kuler", mašina koja hladi pacijenta tokom kardiohirurške operacije, što je neophodno. Dobili smo i "Ekmo pumpu" koja zamenjuje rad srca i pluća. Pacijentu mogu da ne funkcionišu srce i pluća ali će kada se priključi na ovaj aparat biti živ do onog trenutka do kog ta mašina radi. To je zaista jedna brilijantna mašina koja omogućava da tretiramo pacijente koji su bili izgubljni sa medicinske tačke gledišta - istakao je dr Milić.

Klinika je dobila i digitalni mobilni rendgen sa štampačem koji je povezan bežično sa kompjuterima, kao i aparat za intra operativno spašavanje krvi koji omogućava da se osim crvenih krvnih zrnaca sačuvaju i trombociti koji su ključni element koji sprečava krvarenje.

-Oprema će se koristiti u intenzovnoj nezi i operacionom bloku. Vrlo je skupa i mi se zahvaljujemo američkoj vojsci na donaciji koja će omogućiti porast broja operacija kardiohirurških pacijenata na našoj klinici. Naš kapacitet bio je 250 operacija godišnje a sada je teorteski moguće, u narednim godinama, podići broj zahvata na 700 do 800 operacija čime ćemo u potpunosti eliminisati liste čekanja na ove zahvate. Do sada je u ovoj godinu urađeno 154 zahvata a do kraja godine se procenjuje da će biti 300 kardiohirurških operacija. U Narednoj nam je plan da ih bude oko 400 - rekao je dr Milić.

Pukovnik Daglas Ferti vojni ataše ambasade SAD u Beogradu rekao je da je zadovoljstvo je raditi sa ljudima koji u svoj posao ulažu srce te da su ljudi u Srbiji poznati po tome što u svoj posao ulažu srce.

Ljudi kažu das u njihova srca ovde bezbedna na ovom mestu i nadam se da će naša mala donacija pomoći da se povećaju kapaciteti za pružanje usluga ljudima širom Srbije. Ove godine imamo 100 godina od kada je predsednik Vilskon dao čuvenu objavu u kojoj je govorio o vezama između Srbije i Američkog naroda a ova ceremonija pokazuje da se te veze nastavljaju. Ta dva naroda sa dva velika srca nastavljaju svoju saradnju i prijateljstvo - rekao je Ferti.

Pukovnik Vorner Ros iz nacionalne garde Tenesija rekao je da je srećan što oružane snage SAD imaju priliku i zadovoljstvo da na ovaj način dopinesu zdravstvenom sistemu Srbije.

Operacioni blok poneo ime predsednika SAD "Vudro Vilsona"

Donacija je pristigla u susret obeležavanju stote godinašnjice od kada je 28. jula 1918. godine američki predsedniik Vudro Vilson, veliki prijatelj srpskog naroda, objavio proglas u kojem je istakao značaj doprinosa srpske vojske u Prvom svetskom ratu a kada se i na Beloj kući jedini put zavijorila srpska zastava. Tim povodom operacioni blok na niškoj Kardiohirurgiji poneće ime "Vudro Vilsona".

Na zgradi Kardihorurgije otkrivena je u spomen ploča zahvalnosti američkom narodu, vojsci i vladi na donaciji.

Holy Emperor Constantine and the Edict of Milan

by Bishop Athanasius (Yevtich)

In 2013 Christian world celebrates 1700 years since the day when the Providence of God spoke through the holy Emperor Constantine and freedom was given to the Christian faith. Commemorating the 1700 years since the Edict of Milan of 313, Sebastian Press of the Western American Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church published a book by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich, Holy Emperor Constantine and the Edict of Milan. The book has 72 pages and was translated by Popadija Aleksandra Petrovich. This excellent overview of the historical circumstances that lead to the conversion of the first Christian emperor and to the publication of a document that was called "Edict of Milan", was originally published in Serbian by the Brotherhood of St. Simeon the Myrrh-gusher, Vrnjci 2013. “The Edict of Milan” is calling on civil authorities everywhere to respect the right of believers to worship freely and to express their faith publicly.

The publication of this beautiful pocket-size, full-color, English-language book, has been compiled and designed by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich, a disciple of the great twentieth-century theologian Archimandrite Justin Popovich. Bishop Athanasius' thought combines adherence to the teachings of the Church Fathers with a vibrant faith, knowledge of history, and a profound experience of Christ in the Church.

In the conclusion of the book, the author states:"The era of St. Constantine and his mother St. Helena, marks the beginning of what history refers to as Roman, Christian Empire, which was named Byzantium only in recent times in the West. In fact, this was the conception of a Christian Europe. Christian Byzantine culture had a critical effect on Europe; Europe was its heir, and then consciously forgot it. Europe inherited many Byzantine treasures, but unfortunately, also robbed and plundered many others for its own treasuries and museums – not only during the Crusades, but during colonial rule in the Byzantine lands as well. We, the Orthodox Slavs, received a great heritage of the Orthodox Christian East from Byzantium. Primarily, Christ’s Gospel, His faith and His Church, and then, among other things, the Cyrillic alphabet, too."
