Installation of the new Universal Anesthesia Machine (UAM) at Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital in Kinshasa, DRC. The anesthesia machine was donated by Gradian Health Systems in New York. The unique feature of this anesthesia machine is that it operates with or without electricity and compressed gas. If power is lost and no other source of oxygen is available the UAM converts automatically to draw-over mode using room air. Gradian Health Systems also trains local biomedical technicians to perform first line service. Mr. Coco Kanda, Bio-Medical Engineer with the Washington Hospital Center attended the training in New York and then led the technical training for anesthetists from all over the DRC. Surgery was later performed using the new machine.
