New Equipment Enhances Care for Pediatric Airway Emergencies

Winthrop’s Pediatric Emergency Department now has a piece of equipment that will enhance the care of patients suffering from airway emergencies, thanks to a generous grant from the Seventh District Foundation.

This new video laryngoscope, known as GlideScope®, provides a consistently clear, real-time view of the airway and tube placement, enabling quick intubation (insertion of a breathing tube). Equipped with a color video monitor, digital resolution camera, as well as different sized insertion devices to best suit the anatomies of infants and children, the machine is designed for use in particularly small airways.

“Pediatric airways present unique physical challenges. Equipment like this is especially useful as it helps us better visualize the airway and assists with tube placement in a timely and safe manner,” said Datev Pidedjian, MD, Director of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Winthrop. “The Pediatric Emergency Department strives to provide the very best care to young patients and their families. We deeply appreciate the generosity of the Seventh District Foundation, who made this equipment possible, as we know it will serve the needs of many children for years to come.”

“The Seventh District Foundations are committed to helping children and we thank them for being such a great supporter and friend of Winthrop-University Hospital,” added Lynn Drucker, Assistant Vice President of Development at Winthrop.
