2020 YARMOUTH HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
WE CARE RADIOTHON
The 2020 WE CARE Radiothon raised enough to purchase
a BiPAP machine and two (2) Transport Ventilators for the Respiratory Services Department
of your Regional Health Centre serving Digby, Shelburne & Yarmouth Counties.
THANK YOU for helping patients breathe a little easier!
|2 Transport Ventilators
|A BiPAP machine delivers pressure and oxygen to a patient via a face mask to help support their breathing. It is to be used in an ICU setting on patients in respiratory failure.||A transport ventilator is a ventilator that has the ability to be battery-powered to allow incubated patients to remain attached to a ventilator while being transported either within the hospital or out of the hospital to another site.|
