Education and training are key to the sustained uptake of any healthcare practice.
You can now download our how-to guide for delivering Lifebox® training in the field.
In our target countries, anaesthesia is most frequently delivered by non-physicians who have trained on the job. And so to develop the skills of those who administer it, each Lifebox® oximetry package comes with an education CD-Rom.
This CD-Rom includes an award-winning instructional video about pulse oximetry, ‘how to’ videos about the WHO Safe Surgery Checklist and tutorials on the correct use of a pulse oximeter. It also contains outline classes, clinical scenarios and tests for a day-long training workshop, a virtual pulse oximeter computer simulator and a logbook to record the users’ experience (useful both for teaching and research purposes), developed by experts in the field.
Following a ‘teach the teacher’ approach, supported by in-country training workshops where there is greatest demand, Lifebox® gives healthcare professionals the tools for a sustained change in the safety and practice of anaesthesia.
