Humpty's Wish List

Our unique Wish List model gives donors
complete choice and transparency in their
giving and many of our donors choose to
support their local hospital or community
in this way. Humpty's Wish List has meant
that thousands of pieces of medical equipment
have been delivered straight to the hospitals
and health services who need them  creating
tangible and life changing outcomes for Australian
children and their families.


ASTODIA DIAPHANOSCOPE, multiple hospitals


The Astodia Diaphanoscope assists medical staff to find veins in young patients. It illuminates small blood vessels and other structures filled with air or liquid. This equipment assists in reducing pain as it allows for the quick and accurate placement of a cannula (a tube that can be inserted into the body), to administer vital medicines to babies and children. Importantly there is then no pain on the little patient as the Astodia means the cannula can be placed with fewer attempts. It is particularly useful with darker skin, or when the veins are not visible due to dehydration.
