The annual QEH Foundation’s Yuletide Gala Auction has been supporting the purchase of priority medical equipment at the QEH for over twenty years. The annual event was held on November 18, 2017 and raised $238,788 to fund the purchase of a bronchial radial probe, MRI compatible ventilator, and an infant warmer for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Supporting the Purchase of Medical Equipment

In 2017 the funds raised at the QEH Foundation’s Yuletide Gala will support the purchase of the following priority medical equipment:

MRI Compatible Ventilator – Used primarily in Intensive Care to allow patients in acute respiratory failure to have an MRI without having to  manually ventilate.

Bronchoscopy Radial Probe & Videoprocessor for Ultrasound Scopes – Used to diagnose and treat lung and gastrointestinal conditions. This equipment will allow real-time images during the scope procedure to be viewed on high definition monitors.

Baby Buggy (Panda Warmer) – Used to stabilize temperature and provide oxygen to babies born in the operating room who require transport to neonatal intensive care.
