Dr. Michael Beach is shown here teaching regional anesthesia techniques with a portable ultrasound machine to facilitate regional blocks. Dr. Melva Ordonez, Dr. Armando Romero Cisneros from Loja, Ecuador and Dr. Glenda Rodriguez took part in this demonstration.
Dr. Michael Beach is shown here giving one of his lectures to residents from various hospitals in Guayaquil, Ecuador as well as anesthesiologists from some of our other sites in Ecuador and Peru. In the early stages of planning for the Interplast anesthesia conference, guests were asked their topics of interest, and this facilitated their participation with great examples of their own experiences and discussions.
I am Dora Rusin-Gomez volunteer services coordinator at Interplast. Next week, I leave for Guayaguil, Ecuador for Interplast's first anesthesia conference (Feb. 2-4). It is exciting to know that dozens of anesthesiologists from all around Latin America will be coming to increase their knowledge of pediatric anesthesia. Having physicians skilled in pediatric anesthesia is critical to the life-changing surgeries Interplast performs. Dr. George Gregory, one of the world's experts on pediatric anesthesia will be leading the conference. We are so lucky to have Dr. Gregory on the Interplast staff! Check back next week to receive daily updates from the conference.
