BC's sickest babies will be able to breathe easier, thanks to TB Vets' generous gift of $46,882 towards specialized respiratory equipment.

At BC Women's Newborn ICU, many babies struggle to breathe because they are born very early and very sick. Some of these babies are especially vulnerable; the right equipment can heal their lungs and save their lives.

TB Vets Charitable Foundation is making a world of difference for sick and premature babies by providing a specialized High Frequency Jet Ventilator for the BC Women's Newborn ICU.

This special kind of ventilator releases small, rapid puffs of breath using as little pressure as possible. Thank you to TB Vets for helping to ensure babies who need help to breathe can access this gentle and effective breathing support.
