Breath of Spring
Posted: April 19, 2024

Your donation to this year’s Breath of Spring campaign will help support the purchase of an Infant Radiant Warmer for the Maternity Ward at Kootenay Lake Hospital.  This piece of equipment uses gentle radiant heat to maintain the body temperature of newborns who require assistance after their birth.  It is equipped with an overhead lamp to prewarm the mattress and is especially helpful in providing soothing warmth for premature babies.  The Infant Radiant Warmer has integrated controls, such as oxygen and suction for clinicians to use when resuscitating babies.  It also comes with a scale for the baby’s first weigh in.  Thank you for keeping our littlest patients warm and safe.

 Any funds raised in excess of our goal will be directed to the purchase of other priority medical equipment for Kootenay Lake Hospital.
