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.
It is a portable device that can easily be carried and it doesn’t require any special training before use.

Edo 2020: ADP Accuses Ize-Iyamu’s Running Mate Of Certificate Forgery

Published

on

The running mate of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the September 19 governorship election in Edo State, Gani Audu, is embroiled in a certificate forgery case.

Documents submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) show discrepancies in his academic qualifications and other means of identification, Vanguard reports.

The discrepancies appear in several documents and show a trail similar to the inconsistencies found in the academic credentials of the sacked deputy governor of Bayelsa State, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, which caused the APC to lose the state after the Supreme Court ruled that his certificates were defective thereby nullifying the party’s ticket in that state’s recent governorship election.

To compound Audu’s woes, the Action Democratic Party (ADP) has instituted a court case at the Federal High Court, Abuja, seeking the court to disqualify the candidate of the APC as result of the defective certificates of his running mate.

The ADP is asking the court to rule that certificates submitted by Audu are forged and that he was not fit to stand for the September 19 governorship election in Edo.

In the documents, while Gani Audu swore to an affidavit submitted to INEC with his name as Audu Abudu Ganiyu, his other documents bear different names.

A legal expert, Mr Blessed Omonuwa, who assessed the documents, said, “While his name on the affidavit is Audu Abudu Ganiyu, in his voter’s card, his name is Audu Abdul Ganiyu. Likewise, in his APC membership card, his name appears as Gani Audu. The WASSCE/GCE certificate he submitted bears Audu Ahudu Ganeyu.”

FRESH: ‘We Must Be Kind To The Dead’ —Tinubu Mourns Kashamu

Published

on

Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says the demise of Buruji Kashamu has demonstrated that death is inevitable for every mortal.

Kashamu, a former senator from Ogun state, died of COVID-19 complications at a Lagos hospital on Saturday.

In a statement on Sunday, Tinubu said he was shocked and saddened by the passing of Kashamu whom he described as “a notable leader in the country and a true grassroots politician”.

He said the deceased worked actively to advance the political and economic fortunes of Ogun state, adding that he admired Kashamu’s doggedness even though they were never in the same political party.

Tinubu said Kashamu’s death has increased the “grotesque list” of important personalities that have lost their lives to COVID-19.

“He fought for his convictions, for the people of Ogun State and for his country,” Tinubu said.

“Senator Kashamu was also a good party man. He was unwavering in his support for his party, PDP, through all the twists and turns of his political life. His passing is a big loss to the larger political family in Nigeria.

“He worked assiduously to advance the political and economic fortunes of his state. Kashamu represented, with merit, Ogun East in the 8th National Assembly and worked well for his constituents. He was a kind and generous man, a philanthropist in his own right and an astute businessman.

“I admire his political doggedness and sagacity, and his steadfastness in pursuing whatever he believes in, though we were never in the same political party.

“Again, Kashamu’s sudden death has demonstrated the transience of human life and rekindles the fact that death is inevitable for every mortal. As such, it behooves on us to be kind to the dead.”

Tinubu asked Nigerians to continue to take protective measures as the economy reopens and as they return to “a new normal in our lifestyles”.

“I mourn with his family, particularly his wives, children and grandchildren. May Almighty Allah lay His hands of protection on them at this moment,” Tinubu said.

He also offered his condolences to Dapo Abiodun, governor of Ogun, and the people of the state.

Edo 2020: Edo Lawmaker Says Obaseki Is A Failure, Declares Support For Ize-Iyamu

Published

on

The lawmaker representing Akoko-Edo II constituency, Hon Emmanuel Agbaje, has pledged his support for the election of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the September 19th governorship election citing his inability to meet his political obligations to his constituents under the present administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki.

He is the second lawmaker out of the ten that have been sitting since the controversial inauguration of the house in July last year to publicly declare their support for Ize-Iyamu.

Addressing his supporters in Igarra over the weekend, Agbaje said the current system as being operated is strangulating them as lawmakers.

He said: “The only time I can remember that I was a true house of assembly member was the first one year and five months and that was when Comrade Adams Oshiomhole was governor.

“In that one year and five months Adams Oshiomhole approved our constituency projects: I cited one in Ward One, I cited a second one in ward 8 Enwan Mixed Grammar school, I cited one in Ososo Secondary school, they are all there uncompleted.

“Oshiomhole mobilised the contractors with 50 per cent of the value of the contracts and that is where the job has stopped till today.

“Since then, for the past four years we have been begging for those jobs to be completed even when we have not got new ones, is that fair?

“Today, I am pained because I have wasted years in the house of assembly without being able to deliver on my campaign promises to my constituents, without being able to meet the slightest of the projections we promised our people because we have a system that doesn’t care about anybody.

“Here we have an opportunity and this opportunity is very simple, it is either we want to continue like this but me I don’t want to end my eight years like this.

“The opportunity is that we get a change, a new system that will now bring out better governance that will benefit all of us so the choice is for our people and I know that we are not foolish.

“They say they did roads in Akoko-Edo, the World Bank did roads for us. We are happy even though the standard of those roads are nothing to write home about because they are almost all being washed away.

“I want to appeal to all of us, I will not stick my neck into projecting this same system that has tied everybody’s hand.”
