Dr Christian Bamberg tells us about his experience at Manhyia District Hospital:
The second day at Manhyia Hospital. Dario Paladini and I have been carrying out hands-on ultrasound training with three trainees. The Acuson machine is, following a back up yesterday, working properly.
For most of the patients it is the first sonography during pregnancy, which means that pregnancy dating and confirmation of EDD is a main topic. The level of the ultrasound scanning is basic, focusing on vitality, presentation, amniotic fluid level, placental location and biometry. But like the previous day the we and the trainees are well motivated to go further, step by step, with the standard view for fetal scanning. We also helped scanning a few gyne patients.
Today is African Union Day, but the OPD is still overcrowded and traffic terrible.
