SANA and Hopital Aboujaoude Hold the Second Session for the Resident Training Course in Ob/Gyn Ultrasound, in Cooperation with ISUOG, 10 June 2017

SANA returned to Hopital Aboujaoude for the second 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 various “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. Subsequently, 4 videos of ISUOG BT lectures were shown and discussed. The primary topics covered were physics and knobology, image interpretation, the female pelvis (normal and abnormal findings). The selected lectures had been presented by Dr. Lil Valentin at the BT Pre-Congress Course at the ISUOG World Congress in Rome in 2017 and by Dr. Shannon Morris at the BT Course with RCOG in Capetown in 2017.

 

The trainees had very positive feedback and several key points were highlighted and discussed.

SANA’s Team Back at Orange Nassau Governmental Hospital 30 May 2017

On its first mission during the Holy Month of Ramadan, SANA returned to Orange Nassau Governmental Hospital in Tripoli today for a medical educational mission with SANA’s trainee, Midwife Nariman, the obstetrical charge nurse at the hospital.

 

Despite the hot day and it being the Holy Month of Ramada, the clinic was packed as usual. Comprehensive obstetrical care was provided by SANA’s team to the patients and all patients were scanned by Midwife Nariman under the guidance of SANA’s Reem S. Abu-Rustum. All patients today were between their 5th to 8th months of pregnancy. They ranged in age between 17 and 37 years. Many were on their first pregnancy and several were advanced maternal age mothers with complex past obstetrical histories. Nariman demonstrated marked improvement and skill as she scanned the patients in accordance with the 6-step approach. Follow ups were arranged for the patients as indicated.

 

SANA thanks Levant Alie Houses SAL and Mr. Dory Mansour for providing all nutritional supplements today.

 

At the end of a most rewarding day, the team headed back home and plans were made for the next visit to the ONGH.
