Thanks to a gift from the Sandra Schmirler Foundation, a new piece of equipment is eliminating any guesswork in opening up the airways of infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Kingston General Hospital.

The new video laryngoscope makes a difference in the care of our smallest patients and is also a key device in helping teach intubation to medical students and other members of the care team. Dr. Bob Connelly explains how in this video.
