A Message from The Squamish Hospital Foundation.
With generous donations from our community, the Squamish Hospital Foundation has purchased a new Glidescope for use at Squamish General Hospital. The Glidescope will be an important tool for our healthcare teams in our fight against Covid-19. The Glidescope assists in difficult airway management facilitating for smoother intubation yet allowing the healthcare teams to visualize the airway with greater physical distancing than traditional intubation techniques, thus providing some protection for our frontline healthcare workers. Once our community has made it through this current crisis, the Glidescope will be of continued use in emergency situations requiring intubation.
The Squamish Hospital Foundation would like to specifically thank 100 Women Who Care Squamish, Rotary Club of Squamish, and the Squamish General Hospital Auxiliary Society for their quick contributions to the purchase of the Glidescope in these difficult times.
