Nationwide distribution of oximeters in Sierra Leone

Lifebox® has been excited to work with Dr Eva Hanciles at the Connaught Hospital in Freetown and with the Sierra Leone Association of Nurse Anaesthetists (SLANA) to meet the oximetry need in Sierra Leone.

On 1-2 May 2012 Dr Hanciles delivered the full Lifebox® training programme to all attendees at the SLANA annual meeting. She was also able to distribute 36 pulse oximeters – ensuring that every single government hospital OR and recovery in the country now has access to life-saving oximetry.

Most recently we joined the ACTs team for further training – and the all-important follow up.  Find out more in this short video by Dr Rob Conway below:
