July Ketamine Week

Posted by on Jul 27, 2018 in Recent News | 0 comments

The African Insitute for Health Transformation (AIHT) at Sagam Community Hospital (SCH) was proud to host our July Ketamine Week with participants from Samburu County.  Every Second Matters for Mothers and Babies Ketamine (ESM-Ketamine)™ Anesthesia Training Program: The training program for this life-saving, award-winning safe anesthesia solution in areas of Kenya with limited access to anesthesia services is housed at AIHT. The training took place from July 2nd to July 6th.  On Monday morning (July 2nd) we welcomed six new trainees to Sagam.  These trainees came to us from Baragoi Sub-County Hospital, Samburu Country Referral Hospital, and Suguta Health Centre.  The participants were Nursing officers, Medical officers, RCO’s and nurses. Their logistical arrangements were supported by Afya Timiza, who was represented by Anthony Lotukoi. A round of trainee and trainer introductions was followed by a presentation introducing the work at AIHT by Debora Rogo, Sagam’s General Manager.  After wrapping up introductions, our Ketamine Champion, Javan Imbamba, presented the first lecture on Ketamine. In addition to the trainees busy Monday morning schedule, the trainees were given the opportunity to administer ketamine during three surgeries under the supervision of our own providers here at SCH. On Tuesday morning another lecture was presented by Javan, Wenslaus Adenya (another Ketamine Champion at SCH), and Juma Jaqtone (our Clinical Officer Anaesthetist on the project), on resuscitating newborns.  This lecture also included a hands on simulation that the attendees all participated in. In the afternoon four surgeries were performed and the trainees administered the ketamine in pairs. Over the course of the next two days our attendees had the opportunity to be the sole Ketamine providers in the six surgeries that took place in that time.  Friday marked the final day of Ketamine Training and included two Cases in the morning, followed by a graduation ceremony in the afternoon. During the graduation ceremony the attendees were presented with Ketamine certificates and together reflected on what they had learned and how the week went.  Many thanks were given and we concluded the week with a delicious cake provided by our very own Administrative Manager, Juddy Odhiambo. We are grateful to the participants for their hard work...

Gombe in Pictures

On 13/6/18 our community outreach team traveled to the market town of Gombe. We considered it to be a huge success as over 130 people stopped by to receive our free health services.  In addition to our regular Community Health Workers, nurses, counselors and administrative team, we had the opportunity to accommodate Kelsey Corbin, a Certified Nurses aid from Colorado.   The following pictures and captions depict the day’s events.   Matron (left most) smiles as she takes a look at the camera along with two residents of Gombe as they question about the services we offer. We would like to kindly thank our sponsors, who without we would not have been able to have such a successful community outreach.  So, a special thanks to Jheigo, Mtiba, KMET, Metronics, Odit, and Essilor.  Finally we would also like to thank the Community outreach team members who continue to do an excellent job every week.   Written by Sebastian Karlson    ...
