Cambodian Princess Norodom Arunrasmy, founder of the Mudhita Foundation, donated a Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) machine to the Preah Ket Mealea Hospital on Wednesday.
CRRT is a type of blood purification therapy used with patients who are experiencing acute kidney injury. During this therapy, a patient’s blood passes through a special filter that removes fluid and uremic toxins, returning clean blood to the body.
Speaking at the handover ceremony of the CRRT machine, Arunrasmy, who is also a privy councilor for the Supreme Privy Council to King Norodom Sihamoni, said the machine would help increase the hospital’s capacity to provide effective treatment to the patients with acute kidney injury.
“This machine is highly efficient, and we hope that it will contribute to improving the health of patients with acute kidney injury,” she said.
Founded in 2014, the Mudhita Foundation mainly focuses its activities on three sectors, namely humanitarian tasks, education and public health. Xinhua
