The Volunteer Auxiliary at CHI St. Luke’s Health-Memorial Lufkin recently purchased a critical piece of new technology for the hospital’s emergency department. The GlideScope® AVL can be used in emergency situations when a patient must be intubated quickly to assist with breathing. Used for advanced video laryngoscopy, this new device provides a consistently clear view of the airway and enhanced maneuverability. The nearly $16,500 piece of equipment was made possible through sales from the CHI St. Luke’s Health-Memorial Gift Shop and other fundraisers hosted by the Volunteer Auxiliary throughout the year.
