PAST WINNERS

What Does My Ticket Purchase Support?

The proceeds from the Jan-Mar 2022 raffles, approximately $33,000, will be going towards the purchase of a machine to perform PICC line insertions in the chemo department, as well as an anatomically accurate arm to practise PICC line and IV insertions. PICC lines are used to administer chemotherapy. They are inserted into a large vein in the arm and threaded through the vein where they remain for the duration of the patient’s treatment. This removes the need for the patient to have an IV put in every time they come in for treatment. The practise arm will be used in the outpatient unit for training purposes. It can be filled with fake blood so that there is blood return for the person that is learning how to complete the insertion.

The proceeds from the April 2022 raffle moving forward will be put towards the purchase of two spacelab monitors that will be used in the OR. These monitors which come at a price tag of $23,000 each, monitor patients’ pulse, blood pressure, respirations, cardiac rhythms and oxygen saturations. In addition, they monitor end-tidal CO2 when a patient is on a ventilator, arterial pressures when a patient has an arterial line in place and perform electrocardiograms which are necessary to diagnose heart attacks.
