Fund a Ventilator for BGSU Respiratory Care Students
The BGSU Firelands Respiratory Care Program is committed to the education and clinical development of high-quality respiratory therapists to serve patients in northern Ohio. Our program is seeking funding for the purchase of a Servo-i ventilator to be used in the lab by our students. Ventilators are the life support for those patients in hospitals who are having difficulty breathing or cannot breathe on their own.
With the addition of this ventilator, students will be able to learn advanced modes of ventilation that are not available on our current equipment. Adding a Servo-i ventilator in the education of our students has the potential to not only improve student learning and increase the pass rates for graduates on national board exams, but also to ensure competency in patient procedures, increase critical care skills, and make our graduates more competitive in the job market.
Once our students graduate, they will become employed at many health care facilities throughout the region. They need to be familiar with the wide variety of ventilators used in these facilities. Working with different ventilators in the lab allows our students to become competent in providing care with this equipment. These experiences can reduce medical errors resulting in improved patient safety.
Reaching Our Goal
We have a vision of building the premiere respiratory care lab in the region. We want our students to be the best they can be. We want to see our graduates provide you and your loved ones with the best care possible. Your gift will help us reach these goals through the purchase of a Servo-i Ventilator. Help us to help our patients breathe easier. Please support our students so they can support those who need our care.
Thank you for supporting the BGSU Firelands Respiratory Care Students!
