WHERE YOUR DOLLARS GO

Support urgent priority needs of the IWK including the purchase of new and advanced medical equipment.


See below for some of the equipment we are raising funds for during this year's IWK Telethon!

Microscope for Eye Examination
Microscope for Eye Examination

(IWK Emergency Department)

This microscope has a bright light and is used during an eye examination. It is a vital piece of equipment that allows for the close examination of the structures at the front of the eye and inside the eye. In the Emergency Department, the most common reason this microscope would be used is to look for a foreign body in the eye of a child. It can also be used to examine an injured or painful eye.

Lounge Sleeper Library Chair
Lounge Sleeper Library Chair

(IWK Birth Unit)

Having a baby is a milestone event that brings together families and friends. These sleep chairs are breastfeeding friendly for new parents/caregivers while holding their newborn. If more than one support person is staying in the room, sleep chairs provide an extra place to rest as they can be reclined into a flat position.



Pediatric Airway Camera
Pediatric Airway Camera

(Pediatric Anesthesia)

A video laryngoscope (pediatric airway camera) is like a tiny camera-equipped "magic wand" for doctors specializing in pediatric anesthesia. Imagine your child needs surgery, and the doctor needs to place a breathing tube safely into their airway while they're asleep. This is where the video laryngoscope shines. It gives the doctor a clear, magnified view inside a child's throat, allowing them to see around corners and navigate with precision.




Syringe Infusion Pump
Syringe Infusion Pump

The syringe infusion pumps deliver small volumes of medication, fluids, or nutrition to pediatric patients across the IWK. The drugs delivered are often life-saving, maintaining blood pressure and heart function in critically ill children. Pediatric patient care often requires the administration of smaller volumes of medications, and the infusion pump allows small volumes to be administered to these little patients in a precise, controlled manner.
