While they enjoyed their special morning tea, hospital staff member Katrina Dorman demonstrated the King Vision Video Laryngosope.

The Laryngoscope is newest edition to hospital equipment.

A purchase made possible by funds recently raised and donated by the Auxiliary.

Ms Dorman said,”The King Vision Video laryngoscope is a small camera mounted on the end of a tube with an enlarged view.”

“It allows doctors to more easily monitor the patient’s airway during the difficult task of intubation.”

“This is then used for mechanical ventilation, similarly to when a patient has a breathing tube during an operation.” said Ms Dorman

Hospital Supervisor, Mr Martin Lau said, “The attachment of the camera to the scope allows the Doctor to see the process of insertion and is an excellent accessory to the hospital equipment”.

Mr Lau again thanked the Auxiliary for their amazing efforts and particularly to Craft Officer, Ms Glynis Durrant who manages the sewing and knitting teams.

Their cloth shopping bags are one of the auxiliary’s best sellers.

Hosted by the hospital staff, the morning tea was just one small way to give back to the women of the Auxiliary for their tireless work for the community.
