May Ketamine Week Recap

Posted on Jun 18 by

The lack of anesthesia services is a well-described crisis in resource-constrained settings worldwide. The consequences of this gap are that millions of women are unable to access emergency cesarean section and other critical reproductive health procedures. The burden of disease and disability resulting from a lack of anesthesia services is unquestionably staggering. Ketamine is an innovative and safe solution that allows emergency operations to proceed in cases when no anesthetist is available. The ESM-Ketamine project is rapidly growing and we anticipate this to greatly contribute towards addressing the anesthesia gap crisis during public health emergencies. This innovation is in no way meant to replace anesthetic care but offers a stop-gap measure while more permanent efforts are made to address the lack of anesthetists.  In response to this immense problem SCH hosts a Ketamine Week once a month to train providers and regulate the use of Ketamine as an anesthetic. The most recent Ketamine Week took place from May 28th to June 1st, 2018.  SCH was pleased to host ten participants (4 observers and 6 Ketamine Trainees) from Turkana county...

CPR Training

Posted on Jun 1 by

Ah ha ha ha, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive, ah ha ha ha stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive was playing throughout the meeting room on the second floor of Sagam community hospital (SCH) while the staff learned how to administer CPR.   Our amazing physician consultant Dr. Mei Ling Liu and nursing consultant Elise Perkins taught the exercise and watched closely as everyone, nurses, the cleaning staff, clinical officers, and even members of the SCH leadership practiced on improvised CPR dummies.  With the help of the repetitive funky rhythm and fitting lyrics of this seventies hit, the Sagam Hospital staff were able to achieve the target amount of chest compressions per minute needed to save a life.  We sincerely thank both Elise Perkins and Dr. Mei Ling Liu for leading this presentation in the hope of saving many lives during emergency situations in the future.
