The NPHVA team did the ''Ice Bucket Challenge'' in front of the Montreal Chest Institute today. We would like to thank Mrs. Kathleen Cumming, an ALS patient for joining us at this event. We would like to nominate the Ottawa Hospital CANVent program and our Satellite Centers in Quebec, Laval, Laurentides and Sherbrooke to take up the challenge. Please give generously to the ALS Society of Quebec:
This past May, certain members of the NPHVA team attended the Canadian Society of Respiratory Therapists educational conference at the Queen Elizabeth Fairmont Hotel. At this 50th Anniversary Conference, our team members discussed different modes of ventilation and the respiratory management of pediatric patients with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Congratulations on a job well done!
On Victoria Day weekend, a few members of the NPHVA team let loose and completed the 5K Color Me Rad Run near the Olympic Stadium. Splashed in waves of color, everyone had a great time and even took this picture as proof of how much fun they had throughout the race!
The National Program for Home Ventilatory Assistance has been at the forefront of quality respiratory care for patients all across the province of Quebec.
