SUPPORT THE EDMONTON FIRE FIGHTER BURN TREATMENT SOCIETY

The Firefighters Burn Treatment Society, Edmonton Chapter, is managed and supported by firefighters who volunteer and dedicate their time. As with all other non-profit organizations we are facing an ever-increasing demand for limited resources and volunteer support. We can not thank you enough for your support of this vital charity. The Firefighters Burn Treatment Society has essentially no overhead or administrative costs, we are managed and operated by firefighters who volunteer their time. At the conclusion of our annual year long campaign, ending December 31st; all funds received are presented to the Firefighters Burn Treatment Unit at The University of Alberta Hospital at our Annual General Meeting and Luncheon held in spring.

We designate that the funds are be used to support research, treatment and recovery. This includes the purchase of new and specialized equipment, ensuring enhanced patient care. It allows for the continuing education of burn unit staff to remain current and share new treatment techniques. We also designated funds to the support The Alberta Fire Fighters Burn Camp.

Current Fundraising Project - LDI Machine

We are currently collecting donations to purchase a new LDI machine to improve the treatment of burn survivors on the Edmonton Firefighters Burn Treatment Unit at the University of Alberta Hospital. 

A LDI machine is used to help support the clinical diagnosis of the depth of a burn injury. This critical piece of equipment can help diagnose the blood flow in a burn wound and the likelihood of a burn healing on it's own or the need for surgical intervention. 

The current machine in use at the Edmonton Firefighter Burn Treatment Unit is outdated and requires a significant amount of time to complete a scan. During the scan time the patient must remain still with their burns exposed to be able to obtain a accurate scan. This can be difficult and uncomfortable for patients of all ages, however more so with pediatric patients. A new LDI machine would allow scans to be completed in the time it takes to take a picture and would overall improve the experience and care of patients of all ages.

Join with us and help us to reach our goal of raising $100,000.00 for this project!  Donate by clicking on the button above and please specify with your donation that it is for the LDI Machine.

Calming Cart

Over the past few years we have seen an increasing number of pediatric burns come through our Acute Burn Clinic on the Edmonton Firefighters Burn Treatment Unit. Having a burn dressing change can be quite a scary and stressful experience for our pediatric patients and their families, not only from pain but from also being in a medical environment.

Our Burn Unit Occupational Therapists wanted to find a way to make the experience of dressing changes less scary and came up with our Edmonton Firefighters Burn Treatment Unit Calming Cart! This cart helps provide visual and auditory distraction during dressing changes. It also has fidget items and interactive toys that can be used with children of all ages to help provide tactile distraction as well. Having the Calming Cart set up prior to patients arriving in the clinic and running while they wait to be seen also helps to reduce anxiety of being in a medical environment!

Compassionate Cart

Since January 2020 EFBTS has funded the Compassionate Cart on the Edmonton Firefighters Burn Treatment Unit. Funds from EFBTS helped to purchase and setup the cart; and continue to ensure the cart remains stocked.

This particular cart makes a large difference for some families that are on the Burn unit. ThebCompassionate Cart is fully stocked with items that families may need when they are with a family member who is receiving end of life care. These items include a variety of snacks and drinks; including a coffee maker and supplied for tea, juice, and water.

When a family has a loved in that is nearing the end of their life they want to stay at the bedside at all times. The Compassionate Cart enables this and allows the unit to support family during this difficult time.

Thanks to your donations to EFBTS we are able to continue to support the needs of patients, patient families, and staff on the Edmonton Firefighters Burn Treatment Unit.

Nikon Immunofluorescence Microscope

This micorscope allows for different parts of cells to be labeled with fluourescent dye so when taking photos of the cells different labeled parts of the cell will light up.

How does this translate to Burn Care and Research?

Our physicians in the lab use this microscope to study burn scar characterisitcs as well as experiemental treatments on burn scar. The microscope allows our physicians to identify the cells and features of burn scar that are different from normal skin and also track and identify the impacts of treatments on the scar tissue cells.

In using the the micorscope through research the lab is able to continue work on improving the treatment of burn scars post burn injury and improve quality of life for our survivors.
