Tamale Hospital
A team of medical professionals from the Louisville School of Medicine in the USA has undertaken a three-day training course for the staff s of the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) in Paediatrics Advanced Life Support (PALS).

The team, which was led by Professor Jania Condurache, Assistant Professor of Paediatrics, gave medical doctors and nurses of the TTH and students of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences of the University for Development Studies (UDS) training in the effective management of resuscitation and other emergency cases especially those involving children.

The 130 participants who undertook the course were taught techniques such as; Endotrachea intubations, a technique in which a tube is used to get access to the lungs to pump air into a patient whose breathing space or airways are blocked.

They were also taught how to use electrical energy to stimulate the heart to work and a needle to access the bone to put fluid into the body.

Dr Bukari Issah, a House Officer and beneficiary of the course, expressed delight at the depth of knowledge he had acquired saying that the training had given him practical experience which he would apply to save lives.

Madam stella Fati Dramani, a Senior Nursing Officer and Mr Wewoli Bentil Awe, a medical student, expressed gratitude to the team for the knowledge imparted to them.

Professor George Rogers of the International Paediatrics Centre of the School later signed a Memorandum of Understanding to forge partnership and cooperation between the Louisville School of Medicine, the TTH and the UDS.

Dr. Ken Sagoe, Chief Executive Officer of the Tamale Teaching Hospital, thanked the team for the training, particularly the training of one of the doctors as the resident doctor who would further train personnel in Tamale and other health facilities in the three northern regions.
