This is thanks to the timely donation of six mobile Automated External Defibrillation kits by ExxonMobil PNG Limited.
The AED kits will serve a critical function in ensuring patient stability and on-the-spot heart and breathing assessment.
The firm’s deputy production manager Dale Pittman said the company was thrilled to support the Games.
“We know how important these kits are in saving lives,” he said.
“If they can be used to save one life during the Games, then it would make us very happy to have played a part in returning someone home safely to their family and friends.”
The Games medical team, led by chief medical officer professor Nakapi Tefuarani, will be responsible for providing medical services to all teams and delegates.
The team is made up of a 168 volunteer doctors, dentists, health extension officers, nurses and medical students.
Tefuarani acknowledged the support and said: “This is a huge boost for the medical team, to be better equipped to cater for the 4000 athletes, officials and spectators who will be at the Games.”
