Last week, our clinicians Javan Imbamba and Jaqtone Jumah took off to Nairobi to participate in Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) training. Throughout their multiple day journey, various topics were covered such as rhythm recognition, bradycardia, stable tachycardia, and pulseless electrical activity and asystole. As quoted by Juma “the new knowledge and skills we acquired during the ACLS training will be of great help in saving lives and we promise to share the same with the [Sagam] team.”
Javan Imbamba shared his in depth experience with us here:
“I had the wonderful opportunity to train in Advance Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). It’s a comprehensive training that is in depth. We were able to take part in the training thanks to a generous donation from the Ujenzi Charitable Trust. The train was hosted by Amref International Kenya in Nairobi. I would like to thank, Festus, the coordinator of the ACLS training for allowing us to take part in the training. We were able to interact with the other participants during the program, and we noticed that 80% of the class participants came from rural settings and 20% from Nairobi. This highlights how important the training is and the significance of spreading these skills to rural settings.
