We arrived and transported a septic neonate. Then a baby was delivered without complication. Then I sewed up a guy hit with a machettee and had to serial exam him to decide when to let him go “home” (aka tent). There is no CT. chest XRs are near impossible to get. However we can get bedside HIV tests, bedside mararia tests, some stat labs. We’ve treated cerebral malaria, burn wounds from sterno-cooking fuel, TB, HTN CVA.
There is a new EM md arrived today and some new nurses. The team volunteerism is amazing. We are no longer the most junior people which is interesting.
oh yeah, the lights go out all the time with power outages….we use headlamps for sutures and IVs and to see at night when no power. I gotta go to bed.
