Philippines

Over 230 Lifebox® oximeters have been distributed to Philippine hospitals so far – around half of these funded by the global cleft lip and palate charity Smile Train.

We have also worked with Operation Smile to provide training in oximetry and the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist at eight sites across the southern island of Mindanao. During November 2012, we distributed 125 oximeters to anaesthesia providers in this area and we are currently making plans to further develop this relationship to encompass additional regions.
