Medical Student Wins Travel Scholarship to Kenya to Study Operative Care in Africa
Date:9/8/2009

Medical student is awarded a prestigious international travel award. The award will be used learn how African health care providers are collaborating with physicians from Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Society of Critical Care Medicine to improve acute medical care in Africa.

Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) September 8, 2009 -- The recent tragic death of Michael Jackson has publicly illustrated the dramatic effects of anesthesia medicines in the hands of individuals lacking training and experience in their utilization. In fact, no American would expect to undergo surgery without a skilled anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist keeping them asleep, pain free and alive during the experience.

However, surgical and anesthetic care in Africa are two areas within medicine that are largely ignored by the big players in African health care. Some entire countries cope with zero anesthesia physicians, and a small contingent of nurse anesthetists who have no continuing medical education. In places like this surgeons have no choice but to simply appoint the most capable untrained person available to "stand-in" as a surgeon directed provider of anesthesia. The results are often so tragic that the surgery itself can be much more dangerous than the condition that it is meant to correct. Thus, untold millions of anesthetics occur annually throughout Africa's 54 countries with inadequate drugs, and equipment and untrained personnel.

This September The Kenya Society of Anesthesiologists is taking the lead toward solving this problem as host to the 4th All African Anaesthesia Congress in Nairobi, Kenya. The All African Anaesthesia Congress only takes place once every four years and this year they are getting the assistance of partners from Johns Hopkins Hospital, Vanderbilt Hospital, The Society of Critical Care Medicine and a number of other academic medical institutions within the Unit
