Acquisition Detail

  • Owner: Dr. Sydney Segal
  • History of Use: Used by Dr. Sidney Segal [1920-1997] who was a noted pediatrician and pioneer neonatologist. His pioneering work in neonatology included the invention of the first effective apparatus for natural breathing in infants with respiratory failure, the design of the first infant air transport system, and extensive research into cystic fibrosis and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). He was instrumental in the establishment of the first intensive care nursery in Canada at the Vancouver General Hospital in the 1960s and later pioneered research and clinical procedures to treat neonatal abstinence syndrome, an affliction of babies borne by drug-addicted mothers. Dr. Segal was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada (1990) and of the Order of British Columbia (1993).
