Surgeons working in 100 degree OR
Wed, 2/10/2010 10:41 AM
Our Morning update from Amanda Mauck, communications specialist:
The team started out at the clinic compound this morning. Dr. Eubanks has three surgeries scheduled. He did one hernia surgery on a little boy this morning and then he’s removing an infection from a woman’s face. There a little boy who came in this morning needed help from a machete accident on his hand.
Most everyone else is assisting with surgeries. The OR doesn’t have air conditioning so it’s really hot. Those assisting are moving in and out, and Dr. Eubanks has been coming out and taking breaks. The air is really stagnant inside and outside there’s a breeze. Today, it’s 90-some degrees so it’s probably more than 100 degrees in the OR.
We’ll go back to Sacred Heart this afternoon to tie up loose ends. Dr. Anand needs to go back for research for one last day. Dr. Eubanks is going to say goodbye to some of his patients.
