Breathing life into the hospital

Campbell River Hospital Foundation has received a $12,846 donation from the TB Vets Charitable Foundation

Campbell River Hospital Foundation has received a $12,846 donation from the TB Vets Charitable Foundation in support purchasing a glidescope for the operating room in Campbell River Hospital.

A glidescope is a tool designed to enable quick intubation by providing a consistently clear, real-time view of a patient’s airway. This makes intubation easier, faster and decreases stress.

A glidescope can be used in a number of clinical applications including intubating patients with c-spine injuries, difficult airways, pediatric and trauma airway management.

For 70 years the mission of TB Vets has been to help British Columbians with respiratory illness lead healthy and productive lives.

From the battlefields of World War II, to fighting a war against respiratory illnesses upon their return, our Veterans understood the meaning of compassion and caring for one’s fellow man.  Their vision was humble – to help disabled and inflicted Veterans find meaningful employment while providing a community service to British Columbians. This vision was accomplished through the creation of the TB Vets Key Tag return program and subsequently the TB Vets Charitable Foundation.

Based in B.C., TB Vets has always ensured that all money raised stays in the province to serve British Columbians.

Over the past two decades, TB Vets has granted more than $11 million to help children and adults with respiratory ailments by funding research and education for Respiratory Therapists, as well as providing life-saving respiratory equipment to hospitals across the province.
