Peace Arch Hospital Foundation Projects: Help Fund a New  Bronchoscope for Peace Arch Hospital

Help Fund a New Bronchoscope for Peace Arch Hospital

Seeing beyond a breath…

The global COVID-19 pandemic has been deadly and has put significant stress on Peace Arch Hospital — your local hospital — this year. But we remain hopeful. And now, there is a new piece of equipment available to us that will help us diagnose critically ill patients with or recovering from COVID-19. It will also help us manage complications such as bleeding of the lungs, lung collapse, or worse.

This wonderful device is called a Bronchoscope, and it is used by doctors, respiratory therapists, and pulmonologists to detect the cause of breathing difficulties and lung problems. It also helps manage issues such as tumours, infection, and bleeding, and helps medical teams monitor a patient’s breathing when they are using an artificial airway during intubation or tracheostomy.

The Bronchoscope is small, but mighty. It will help COVID-19 patients and others suffering from breathing difficulties to recover. But it costs $35,000, so we need your help!
