On June 2nd our star Clinical Officer, Ann Sammy, took to Nairobi for the E-fast Obstetric and Gynecological Ultrasound Training.
This was a multi faceted training where Mrs. Sammy learned how to use an ultrasound to conduct an E-fast. An E-fast is a focused assessment sonography for trauma to examine if there has been any trauma in an emergency, such as blood or plural fusion in the body cavities. In this exciting training, Mrs. Sammy practiced her new skills on live models.
In the second part of her training, Mrs. Sammy learned to conduct ultrasounds in the first, second, and third trimester of a pregnant woman. Our brilliant Clinical Officer 1 of only 2 trainees who passed the exam! At Sagam, we cannot wait for Mrs. Sammy to teach us what she learned!
