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.

Notes On Ecumenism

Written in 1972 by St. Abba Justin Popovich, edited by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich, translated from Serbian by Aleksandra Stojanovich, and proofread by Fr Miroljub Ruzich

Abba Justin’s manuscript legacy (on which Bishop Athanasius have been working for a couple of years preparing an edition of The Complete Works ), also includes a parcel of sheets/small sheets of paper (in the 1/4 A4 size) with the notes on Ecumenism (written in pencil and dating from the period when he was working on his book “The Orthodox Church and Ecumenism”; there are also references to the writings of St. Bishop Nikolai [Velimirovich], short excerpts copied from his Sermons, some of which were quoted in the book).

The editor presents the Notes authentically, as he has found them in the manuscripts (his words inserted in the text, as clarification, are put between the slashes /…/; all the footnotes are ours).—In the appendix are present the facsimiles of the majority of Abba’s Notes which were supposed to be included in his book On Ecumenism (written in haste then, but now significantly supplemented with these Notes. The Notes make evident the full extent of Justin’s profundity as a theologian and ecclesiologist of the authentic Orthodoxy).—The real Justin is present in these Notes: by his original language, style, literature, polemics, philosophy, theology, and above all by his confession of the God-man Christ and His Church. He confesses his faith, tradition, experience and his perspective on man, on the world and on Europe—invariably in the Church and from the Church, in the God-man Christ and from Him, just as he did in all of his writings and in his entire life and theologizing.
