bCPAP Training at AIHT

Posted on May 26 by

On Thursday, May 25th, Sagam Community Hospital and AIHT hosted a training for their latest innovation to implement in Siaya County. The Every Second Matters New born Resuscitation Bundle (ESM-NRB), a contiunos positive airway pressure (CPAP) device that is commonly used in the rest of the world. However, what makes this device so special is that it costs about 15 USD to create, rather than hundreds or thousands of dollars. In addition, ESM-NRB kit does not require electricity. This was specifically designed to function in low resource setting where power is intermittent. This is essential because according to John Hopkins University, most of the 13 million children under 5 hospitalized for respiratory illnesses live in low and middle-income countries. We had participants come from Bondo, Yala, Ambira, and Madiany Sub County Hosptials and Sagam Community Hospital to be trained in using the ESM NRB kit, also known as bubble continuous positive airway pressure (bCPAP). During this daylong session, the trainers focused on the practical and theory approach to using bCPAP. The next day, the trainers put their teaching to...

Muhoho Community Outreach

Posted on May 26 by

This week, our community outreach team took us to Muhoho, roughly 20 minutes from Sagam Community Hospital (SCH). At this outreach, we were posted in a rural setting outside of a church, where we attended to the local residents. Thanks to Sagam’s administration teams efforts at mobilization and posting signs for awareness, we had a large turnout this week!   In total, 177 people were seen in six hours. From this total, 112 were screened for high blood pressure and our star clinical officer, Jacqueline Chemem, saw 43 people.In addition, Juliet and Varisty, Sagam’s expert nurses at cervical cancer screening, saw 31 women. We look forward to continue reaching as many people possible during our outreaches, especially in our home county, Siaya. SCH strives to spread the message of how important preventative medicine and screening are! We would like to thank our partners, Jhpiego, CHAK, M-Tiba, and KMET for helping us spread this...

University of California Irvine Guests at Sagam

Posted on May 26 by

Over the past 10 days, we have had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Chris Barrios and Dr. Megan Lundeberg from the University of California (UC), Irvine. As renowned trauma and critical care surgeons, they brought a great deal of insight and consultation expertise to Sagam Community Hospital. Recently, Dr. Lunderberg gave a riveting presentation on haemorrhagic shock and trauma. This medical education presentation provided critical information for our Sagam clinicians as we unfortunately see numerous road trauma due to matatus and boda bodas.   A couple of months ago, we hosted Dr. Dolich and Dr. Lekawa, co-workers of Dr. Barrios and Dr. Lunderberg from UC Irvine. The continuous visits from UC Irvine surgeons are for the potential to begin and rollout a surgical fellowship, a global health experience at Sagam. Here at Sagam, we have not only enjoyed their medical expertise but also their gregarious personalities. We look forward to the full implementation of this surgical fellowship at Sagam Community...
