SANA with Medecins Sans Frontieres at DAZ 4 July 2017

On one of the hottest record days in Lebanon, SANA’s team returned to Dar Al Zahra’ in Abu-Samra today for a medical/educational mission with Medecins Sans Frontieres. Accompanying SANA was trainee Marie Andary, a 4th year midwifery student at the Lebanese University.

 

It was another busy day with a packed clinic where SANA’s team provided comprehensive prenatal care to a multitude of patients ranging in age between 15 and 30 years. In addition, SANA carried out full assessments on the patients and they were all scanned by trainee Marie under the guidance of SANA’s Reem S. Abu-Rustum in accordance with the 6-Step Approach. Marie had previously worked on SANA’s SonoSim simulator and this was her first hands-on experience carrying out scans on patients. She was able to carry out the first 5 steps and progressively improved in the ability to identify key anatomic landmarks.

 

As always, MSF’s midwife Louiis accompanied SANA’s team and provided invaluable assistance helping arrange follow ups for the patients and providing them with the needed medications.

 

At the end of another rewarding day, the team headed back home and plans were made for the next visit with MSF…

 

SANA and Hopital Aboujaoude Hold the Third Session for the Resident Training Course in Ob/Gyn Ultrasound, in Cooperation with ISUOG, 1 July 2017

SANA returned to Hopital Aboujaoude for the third session of the Resident Training Course in Ob/Gyn Ultrasound in cooperation with ISUOG, structured in accordance with ISUOG Basic Training Guidelines (BT). Since the first session, there have been several “simulation-based” sessions where the residents practiced hands-on scanning using SANA’s simulator as well as participated in the online learning modules.

 

The day started with an overview of what has been accomplished thus far and the plans for the future. Subsequently, 4 videos of ISUOG BT lectures were shown and discussed. The primary topics covered were evaluating the fetus at 4-10 weeks; 10-14 weeks and normal/abnormal anatomy in the second trimester and finally fetal growth patterns. The selected lectures had been presented by Drs. Cohen-Overbeek; Ali, Abu-Rustum and Chudleigh at various ISUOG BT courses in the past 2 years. In addition, clinical correlations were highlighted with the trainees.

 

At the conclusion of the session, submitted images by the trainees were reviewed with feedback given in order to improve them.

 

All are counting down to the next session in a few weeks J
