Biomedical Engineers are an important part of all hospitals – without safe and properly functioning medical equipment, doctors and nurses cannot do their life saving work. We believe that Biomedical Engineers across the globe need access to thorough training.
To see an example of a module we have listed the videos for Unit Nine, Diathermy, for you to watch. At the end you can then try the multiple-choice question paper (MCQ) to see how much you have learnt.
On the actual course, which uses the very commonly used Moodle learning platform, the MCQ can be repeated as many times as is needed until all answers are answered correctly. Each time it is taken the questions appear in a different order.
The student cannot move to the next unit until all the answers are completed correctly.
I am pleased to report that the equipment arrived safely in Mwanza… I can confirm that all the large items were present …All the instrument sets were in order… The quality of the surgical instruments is superb. As promised, you included an enormous number of extras, the largest of which was a multifunction patient monitor. There are two ambulance emergency kits, a large range of anaesthetic equipment and vast supplies of surgical disposables. There are surgical scrubs and white gowns as well. Thank you for your efficiency and generosity. The people of rural Tanzania will most definitely benefit.
One of the easy we can make budgets go a long way is the sensible use of equipment no longer required in the west. This recycling is very effective. Please do contact us for further details if you think you have equipment of any sort that may help.
