We have been extremely fortunate to have ongoing support from the New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists (NZSA) for roll out of oximeters and training across Vietnam.
Working with Vietnamese Society colleagues, NZSA delivered two Lifebox® training workshops in 2012 (at Lao Cai General Hospital and Phu Yen General Hospital) and facilitated the distribution of over 80 oximeters.
This collaboration has continued during 2013 when further oximeters were made available across Vietnamese operating departments. The latest training workshop facilitated by New Zealand colleagues took place during autumn 2013.
The picture shows some of the trainees at the August 2012 workshop held at Phu Yen.
