MEDIGOLD AFRICA LAUNCHES FETAL HEART RATE MONITORING EQUIPMENT

Published

on

Medigold Africa is an electro-medical equipment Company that provides reliable medical equipment solutions to hospitals, laboratories, pharmacies and super markets. The Company sells Medical Equipment such as: X-ray Digitizer, ESR Machine, Mobile XRay Machine, etc. The Company currently has over 5000 products on sale.

Late last year, Medigold Africa launched a fatal heart rate monitoring equipment that measures the heart rate and rhythm of fetus in the womb. This equipment enables health care providers to find out the health status of one’s baby and ascertain his or her medical condition. Nigerians are fortunate to be having this at a time where maternal and infant mortality rates are high. According to Guardian Newspaper (April, 2019), every single day, Nigeria loses about 2,300 children under five and 145 women of childbearing age. Nigeria is the second largest contributor to the under-five and maternal mortality rate in the world accounting for 14% of the world’s maternal mortality deaths (the highest in West and Central Africa).

Maternal and infant mortality is a critical indicator of global development, and decreasing its severity has been a challenge in low-income countries for decades despite the presence of effective interventions. The co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Bill Gates, named Nigeria as one of the most precarious places in the world to give birth and also the 4th country with worst maternal mortality rate after Sierra Leone, Central African Republic and Chad.

Poverty, indisputably, contributes to this dastardly statistic. Many women especially those in rural areas due to low income and limited hardly have access to quality prenatal and postnatal care. Report by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that 40% of women in low-income countries visit antenatal care units. The resultant effects are not far-fetched, Nigeria’s maternal mortality statistics at 814 deaths per 100,000 live births stands at 14% of the world’s maternal mortality deaths.

A UNICEF report (2016) shows that an estimate of 2,600 children died within the first 24 hours every day of the year, while 2.6 million children died before the end of their first month. More than 80 per cent of these children died from preventable and treatable causes such as premature birth, complications during delivery, and infections like sepsis and pneumonia. The major strategy for decreasing maternal and child morbidity and mortality is ensuring that every baby is delivered with the assistance of a trained birth attendant which generally includes a medical doctor, nurse or midwife. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) aims to curtail global maternal mortality to less than 79 per 100,000 live births by the year 2020 and this can only be achieved if we come together to put an end to this. However, for Nigeria, this seems almost unattainable, rather the rate continues surging upwards.

The Nigerian government has continuously paid lip service to the system of healthcare delivery; especially as it affects maternal and child welfare. Though, states such as Lagos have done an impressive job of creating healthcare centers in keys areas to support women, but it is not enough. Lagos is not effectively representative of Nigeria, considering that about 62% of her population is based in the rural areas. Terminating preventable mother and child deaths can be achieved by improving access to skilled health-personnel during pregnancy and at the time of child birth. Also providing lifesaving interventions, such as immunization, breastfeeding and affordable medicines. Ensuring rural communities have basic amenities, enhanced hygiene and sanitation thereby risk of disease outbreak and this is where our Company come in. Having served various medical institutions and partnered with leading medical equipment companies in the UK, US, China, Italy and Japan, we believe that we can serve you and provide reliable solutions to your medical equipment needs here in Nigeria.

Generally, there are 2 ways of monitoring fetal heart rate- external and internal monitoring but Medigold’s brand of Fetal Doppler is used externally because it is safer relative to the internal monitoring equipment.
External Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring uses a device to listen to and record one’s baby’s heartbeat through the mother’s belly (abdomen). An example of this is the Doppler Ultrasound device. It’s often used during prenatal visits to count the baby’s heart rate. It may also be used to check the fetal heart rate during labor. The healthcare provider may also check one’s baby’s heart rate continuously during labor and birth. To do this, the ultrasound probe (transducer) is fastened to the mother’s belly. It sends the sounds of the baby’s heart to a computer, the rate and pattern of your baby’s heart rate are shown on a screen and printed on paper.

WHY YOU SHOULD BUY FROM US?
Our brand is an innovative Wireless Smart Fetal Doppler which has a Mobile App to transmit the information into the mobile phone where the report is seen and thus could be shared with the doctor or physician through Facebook messenger or WhatsApp messenger.

The FidelinfoNews gathered that the former Lagos state Governor said he chose the economic nerve center of northern Nigeria to show that Fulanis and Yorubas are one, thereby berating the the already raging secessionist agenda.

“It is to demonstrate to Nigerians at this critical time. It is because there is a Fulani man, a herder man who gave his daughter to a farmer, Yoruba man. And that Fulani, that Yoruba, and some people are agitating wrongly”, Tinubu Said, Making reference to the marriage of the daughter of Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, to the son of the late ex-Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, which took place in Kano in 2018
