Nick Simons Foundation Grant Awarded for Universal Anesthesia Machine
Drs. Eric Jackson, John Sampson and Ben Lee are leading a project to study the introduction of a Universal Anesthesia Machine designed for use in austere environments. The ACCM team has a two year grant from the Nick Simons Foundation to create an educational curriculum around the use and introduction of the UAM, deliver the equipment and first training sessions on site in Sierra Leone, to study the proliferation of the use of the equipment by the in-country trainers, and to monitor the effects remotely.
