Thailand Training, Aug 2015
I was met by the rep of Boston scientific mrs. Airh in Thailand the following morning at the hotel and we went to the hospital,were I received a very friendly warm welcome by the staff members of the cathlab. I was then introduced to the staff members and to the management of the hospital,and the layout of the hospital and the unit.
On the 4 August I was lectured by the chief of the cathlab about the rotablator procedure. During the month of August I have observed x7 rotablator procedures.On the 5th August Dr.Beshir arrived and we were together introduced to the procedure. We did x2 on that 5th and again x2 on the 6th and x1 on the 7th August, from which I scrubbed x3 with the assisting nurse.
The week of 10-14 August there were no rotas booked but I have observed and scrub with the assisting nurse very interesting PCI'S mainly CO'S and I really learned a lot during this procedures,the doctors was always explaining in detail during the procedures and afterwards.On the 20th August x2 rotas were done whereby I have again co-scrubbed.
I have also witnessed cases like mitral valve commissurotomy and ASD closures,which was interesting.I have really gained a lot of experience and learned a lot from my visit to Central Chest Institute of Thailand.
I am very thankful for the opportunity that was granted to me by Boston Scientific/PASCAR and I am comfortable to do rotas in my cathlab in Windhoek Central Hospital.
