Multi-Day Clinic in Playa Verde

image

Multi-Day clinic in Playa Verde. We taught some ultrasound stuff to some of the local health care workers out here in the bush. It was good to teach, but these people really have zero background in basic anatomy learning about this kind of stuff, that made the training pretty difficult.
Still, it was good to see some patients and do what we could.

Here is a photo of us practicing with the SonoSim, which is turning out to be a great tool to teach basic ultrasound, as well as the anatomy and pathology.

We saw a ton of patients out here during the clinic and we did several prenatal ultrasounds as well as pediatric cardiac screenings. Thanks for your support!

Rain and waves to Playa Verde

This was one of the most exciting trips we’ve had with the floating doctors so far. Our boat ride took us 2 & ½ hours through a rain storm and some fun waves. We finally got to Playa Verde, where we chilled for the afternoon in the ridiculous rain. I had brought my guitar so we played a few songs for the women who were cooking our dinner. I think it was a big hit and I had a great time with them. I think I may have played out my songs though, because even I was a little tired of the guitar by the end of the evening!
This photo has Dr. Ben Labrot and his wife Karine, with Shana on the left, Olivia Sanchez up front with me and Aly, then Iona Wray, the Canadian in the back right.

Tomorrow we will have clinic and some ultrasound training. Gonna be a great day!
