Video Laryngoscopes Donated Through Waverley’s City2Surf Fundraising Arrive at Royal Hospital for Women’s NICU

Premmie Marathon Challenge

We’re excited to share the news about the arrival of the video laryngoscopes at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, donated through our College’s incredible fundraising efforts in the recent City2Surf.

Dr Tim Schindler from the Royal Hospital for Women sends this message of thanks to everyone in our generous Waverley family.

“These new laryngoscopes, being smaller and having live video assistance, are going to be an enormous help in intubating our tiniest premature babies that need ventilation, and we are so grateful to the Waverley College community for making this possible.”
