From the Heart
This year’s From the Heart video, titled “Breathless,” highlights a high-priority need from our Respiratory Therapy department.
The Transport Ventilator is a small and compact ventilator that allows the Respiratory Therapists to provide similar ventilation that a bedside unit provides, while transporting the intubated patients for tests and procedures.
Presently, all intubated COVID-19 patients are transferred to other sites. Transport of intubated patients to other sites regularly occurs approximately once per week, but with COVID-19, it has risen to approximately three times per week.
This dependable, compact, and light ventilator allows safe transport of patients to other sites and reduces the risk of injury to staff.
We are delighted to announce that with the generous support of our community and the From the Heart Sponsor, The Jourdain Family, we were able to raise the total amount of $36,700 to purchase the Transport Ventilator.
We’d also like to give thanks to Maverick Video Group for producing the From the Heart video, as they do every year.
