#WCALifebox – Belgium, Benin and Uzbekistan

In 2012, a collaboration between the Society for Anesthesia and Resuscitation of Belgium, Societé d’Anesthesie-Reanimation du Benin and Rotary Clubs in both Genk-Staelen (Belgium) and Cotonou-Centre (Benin) with funding from Rotary International saw ‘Bénin – Saturation 100%’ – a project to provide pulse oximeters to every OR in the county became a reality.

Thanks to a generous donation of 100 Lifebox pulse oximeters from the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA), with support from the Uzbekistan Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care – we delivered essential equipment and training to anaesthesia providers across the country in January 2015.
