Wayne Pruden Memorial Golf Tournament

Equipment Purchases

2015 - 2016

In 2015 golfers helped to purchase three new microscopes for the Laboratory at BUH.  These microscopes will help to reduce wastage, human error, and turnaround time for patients.  Rather than using the naked eye the new microscope allows enhanced details and will result in less samples being transferred to Saskatoon for further study.  Less samples will also be sent to Saskatoon due to the additioinal camera.  The image can simply be downloaded to a pathologist and a diagnosis will be made sooner for the patient.

Fluoroscopy UnitMedical Imaging at BUH is in need of a new digital fluoroscopy unit and the proceeds from this year's Golf Tournament will go to support this estimated $550,000 purchase.  A digital fluoroscopy unit obtains real time imaging of a patient which then allows the radiologist to observe organs and functional imaging of the body to provide accurate and timely diagnosis and possible life saving interventions.  Thank you for helping to make this purchase possible.


 2013 - 2014

Funds from the 2013 WPMGT supported purchases in the Emergency Department (ED) and the Laboratory at BUH.  The ED benefited from Welch Allyn Green Series LED Lights that assist doctors and nurses in treatments and procedures.  The Laboratory received a new Slide Stainer / Centrifuge that ensures accurate and precise assessment and diagnostic readings on clinical specimens.  This will give information about the health of the patient pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.  The holter monitors received by the Laboratory means availabiliy for patients to monitor their heart activity over a set time period to provide proper treatment and care.

Dr. Engelbrecht, ER Physician, with the Glidescope Video LaryngoscopeThe Emergency department at BUH is grateful for the purchase of a new Glidescope Video Laryngoscope, made possible with the proceeds from the 2012 Tournament.  The Glidescope Video Laryngoscope is used for securing airways into patients who may or may not be able to breathe on their own.  The unit has a camera on the end, allowing medical staff to see down the throat and to where the tube needs to be passed.  This is important as they may not be able to manipulate the patient's neck to ensure the tube is passed where it is required.  Now they will have a consistently clear, real-time view of the airway and tube placement. 

In the past year the Emergency Room at BUH had nearly 35,000 visits and the volume of trauma patients increased where they needed to secure the airways.  The new Glidescope Video Laryngoscope will allow the Emergency Room physicians and the respiratory therapists to secure the airways with ease of access thanks to the funds raised with the 2012 Tournament.


2011 - 20122011 WPMGT Bladder Scan

Proceeds from the 2011 Tournament were raised to purchase a portable BladderScan for the Women's Health & Birthing Centre.  This piece of equipment is basically an ultrasound that measures bladder volume.  This aids in diagnosing urinary retention and post-operative urinary retention.  The nursing staff are able to assess and monitor urological concerns, preventing unnecessary catheterization, eliminating possible trauma and catheter associated urinary tract infections to patients.


2010 - 2011

ICU Patient Bedside MonitorThe proceeds from the 2010 Tournament have been allocated to purchase patient Bedside Monitors for the Intensive Care Unit. These monitors will replace the current, outdated ones, and are vital to the patient's care. Every time a patient is admitted into the unit they are hooked up to a cardiac monitor at the bedside, which is connected to the main monitoring unit at the nursing station. They monitor a basic rhythm strip of the heart and have the capacity to monitor a second view of the heart if there is an area of concern. They also monitor other vital signs and assist the ICU Care Team in caring for their patients and ensuring they receive the best care possible.


2009 - 2010

Funds from the 2009 Golf Tournament assisted in the purchase of specialized chairs and hospitality units for the renal dialysis unit.  Renal dialysis filters the blood of waste products, doing the job of a normal, healthy kidney. Dialysis typically takes 4 hours to complete, and is required 3 times a week. Some patients travel long distances to receive this life-giving treatment, and it is imperative that the patient remain relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure. The purchase of this new equipment recognizes this need.


2008 - 2009

The proceeds from this year's tournament will allow for the purchase of four additional pieces of life saving equipment. A Triple Channel IV Plum will be purchased for the Intensive Care Unit, allowing for the administration of three medications with one pump. This compact unit will increase patient and staff safety, aiding in patient transporting and mobilization. In addition, three vital signs monitors will be purchased for use on the 3rd Floor Medical Ward, and in out-patient day surgery. These comprehensive, advanced monitors will provide medical staff with timely, accurate readings of patient blood pressure, pulse rates and temperature.
