SANA Returns to Orange Nassau Governmental Hospital 25 April 2017

SANA returned to Orange Nassau Governmental Hospital in Tripoli today for a medical educational mission with SANA’s trainee, Midwife Nariman, who is also the obstetrical charge nurse at the hospital.

 

 

The team arrived to a packed clinic that was superbly organized by Midwife Nariman. The patients patiently waited their turn to be seen, some of whom were there for 5 hours. SANA provided comprehensive obstetrical care to the patients and all patients were scanned by Midwife Nariman under the guidance of SANA’s Reem S. Abu-Rustum. Nariman skillfully scanned the patients in accordance with the 6-step approach. All patients today were between their 4th to 8th months of pregnancy. They ranged in age between 18 and 43 years. Many were on their first pregnancy and several were advanced maternal age mothers with complex past obstetrical histories. Followups were arranged for them as indicated.

 

 

SANA thanks Mr. Dory Mansour and Levant Alie Houses SAL 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.

 

SANA Returns to Abu-Samra with Medecins Sans Frontieres 18 April 2017

SANA returned to Dar AL Zahra’ in Abu-Samra today for a medical/educational mission with Medecins Sans Frontieres. Accompanying SANA was trainee Nada Al Ghoul, a 4th year midwifery student at the Lebanese University.

 

It was another intense day for SANA’s team as they provided comprehensive prenatal care to a multitude of patients ranging in age between 17 and 48 years. SANA carried out full assessments on the patients and they were all scanned by trainee Nada under the guidance of SANA’s Reem S. Abu-Rustum in accordance with the 6-Step Approach. This was Nada’s first experience carrying out scans on patients as she had only worked on the simulator before. She demonstrated excellent recognition of fetal anatomy and key anatomic landmarks, placed the calipers perfectly and her biggest challenge was obtaining the plane of the BPD.  SANA redated 36% of the patients seen.

 

MSF’s midwife Louiis never left SANA’s team and she provided all needed medications and followups for the patients.

 

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

SANA carried out full evaluations on the patients and they were all scanned by trainee Esperance under the guidance of SANA’s Reem S. Abu-Rustum. Having worked on SANA’s simulator as well as in the outreach with SANA, Esperance demonstrated much skill and ease in scanning the patients, ascertaining anatomy and confirming placental location.  She redated 25% of the patients seen.
