Tyler Pilon, Interim Manager, ICU and Respiratory Therapy and Dr. Shirley Babaran, Chief of Medicine with the new GlideScope Video Laryngoscope.
Thanks to a generous gift from the Weber Foundation, the ICU at Georgian Bay General Hospital is receiving three key pieces of equipment to enhance patient care.
Nurses and physicians in the ICU care for patients in critical condition, where time is of the essence. The care team needs efficient, high-quality tools to provide their patients with exceptional care.
The Sonosite portable ultrasound will enable physicians to treat patients faster, more accurately and in a non-invasive way at their bedside, without trips to the Imaging Department.
A transvenous cardiac pacing unit provides temporary electrical cardiac stimulation to treat a patient’s heart arrhythmia, either until it resolves, or until long-term therapy can be initiated.
The GlideScope video laryngoscope (shown in photo above) enables quick intubation, giving physicians a clear, real-time view of the patient’s airway.
