Storz and Venner donations: More safety for operations in Chad

2020/05/05

Inhaling, exhaling: the basics for living. If this is no longer possible, it gets life-threatening – swift action is essential. The two companies Storz and Venner Medical now donated intubation equipment to the humedica clinic Guinebor II in Chad and help to save lives in emergency situations and operating rooms.

"Safe anaesthesia contributes essentially to reduce the mortality rate of operations. What is matter-of-course in Europe, is lacking in many development countries“, explains Dr. med. Michael Schüle, an anaesthetist working at the hospital. „Without this donation the clinic would have no equipment in the field of difficult respiration. Together we make a valuable contribution to the safety of narcotics in Chad.”

The republic in the heart of Africa is one of the poorest countries of the world. Poverty, hunger as well as poor health care are big problems. That is why humedica supports the Guinebor II hospital in the capital N’Djamena. Since its foundation in 2010 the clinic is run by local and international personnel.

Every day, the anaesthesiology department of the hospital is busy improving safety standards. It aims to introduce general anaesthesia and to train nursing anaesthetists how to perform intubations. The equipment donated by the companies Storz and Venner Medical is an important support, Schüle emphasizes, „Thank you very much for your generous contribution.“
