It’s been incredibly exciting to see how the Anesthesia Department at the University of Florida (UofF) – under the leadership of Head of Department Dr Kayser Enneking – has swung into action to make sure every single OR in Honduras has access to robust and reliable pulse oximetry.
We have been delighted to make these available with Spanish-language settings thanks to a fundraising campaign supported by the Wise-Foundation which saw UoF colleagues raise over $33,000 for Lifebox®.
The UofF team worked with the Sociedad Hondurea de Anestesiologia, Reanimacion y Dolor (SHARD) to distribute oximeters and training across the country. The team also enlisted the support of the First Lady of Honduras for this effort which culminated in a range of workshops in August 2012.
