Working with the local anesthesia residents – Feb 18, 2009

Today was another successful day with Uplift. In addition to our surgical procedures, Dr. Jacob and I spent some time with the local anesthesia residents. Dr. Jacob gave a lecture about difficult airway management in anesthesia, and we also had a demonstration of how to use the fiberoptic scope – which is an anesthesia tool that the hospital had recently purchased but none of the residents were familiar with how to use it. It was a rewarding experience sharing some of our knowledge with our colleagues across the globe.
