CSL Behring Medical Product Donation Helps Meet Critical Need for Ongoing Cholera Relief Effort in Haiti
Date:12/6/2010

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Direct Relief International announced today that CSL Behring has donated critically needed medical supplies to assist cholera patients in Haiti. The products will be used at Justinian University Hospital (JUH) in Cap-Haitien. JUH is the main public hospital for the entire northern sector of the country; the I.V. solutions and supplies will also be distributed to the numerous cholera treatment units (CTUs) that have been established in the cholera outbreak area as dictated by need.

The donation, consisting of 4,632 bags of Lactated Ringers solution, 1,500 infusion sets, and 1,500 safety catheters, will help treat patients who have been hospitalized due to infection with cholera, a serious condition that has affected Haiti in epidemic proportions in recent months.  The solution is administered intravenously and will be used mainly to replenish body fluids in patients who have experienced severe dehydration as a result of their condition. It may also be used as a conduit for other medicines to be administered to cholera patients.

This is CSL Behring's second donation of medical supplies to Direct Relief International, which helps local health facilities in over 70 countries treat people affected by poverty, disaster, and civil unrest.

"CSL Behring is honored and pleased to be in a position to once again help the people of Haiti," said Peter Turner, President of CSL Behring. "They have endured so much. We hope our contribution will bring some relief to those who need it the most. They are certainly in our thoughts."

"We are so grateful for CSL Behring's contribution of Lactated Ringers solution, infusion sets and safety I.V. catheters," said Nate Nickerson RN, DrPH, Executive Dire
