Region 10 health workers benefit from ‘Zero Maternal Death’ training

first_imgMedical professionals attached to Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) are currently undergoing a three-day workshop in support of zero maternal deaths caused by haemorrhaging.The initiative which is being hosted at the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC) is organised by the Public Health Ministry in collaboration with the Pan-American Health Organisation (PAHO). The workshop which commenced on Wednesday wraps up today.Medical professionals including doctors, medics, midwives and community health workers are all participating.Facilitators said participants will benefit from training on how to estimate blood loss, recognise signs of shock and ways in which maternal patients can be stabilised.Health workers and facilitators at the seminarIt also includes education on the use of non-surgical methods utilising simple, low-cost medical materials in an effort to stop bleeding.Speaking with Guyana Times, National PAHO consultant, obstetrician/gynaecologist, Dr Padmini Singh noted that it was discovered that one of the leading causes of maternal deaths is due to postpartum haemorrhaging, hence the need for training medical professionals.“What we have identified in Guyana, one of the main reasons that women die is postpartum haemorrhage. So because of this, we decided it’s a very important training that the medical personnel should have…it helps personnel to identify that the patient is in shock and the patient is bleeding. So the first and most important thing is to recognise the condition,” she explained.Dr Singh added that the programme has already been undertaken by various countries in the Caribbean and Latin America and would have all seen positive results. In like manner, she said Guyana is also hoping to do so.“We are very passionate about the reduction of maternal deaths… We don’t want to see any of our pregnant women dying… that’s why we’re training our personnel, to recognise the deficiencies and work on those to strengthen the system,” she noted.Dr Singh said PAHO is also lending technical support to the Public Health Ministry for training to be extended across all regions of Guyana. All have benefited so far, she explained, except for Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni) which is expected to benefit next month.Participants were also educated on the use of medication to prevent and control bleeding.Dr Singh noted that PAHO has also provided assistance in the provision of anti-shock garments (garments used to stabilise patients, to have them safely transferred from a primary to referral institution).Dr Singh, who is also working on the Maternal Mortality Reduction Project, stressed that all medical personnel have an important role to play in maternal death reduction.“With us teaching all of these methods and giving these tools… we hope that eventually we can prevent maternal deaths by haemorrhage,” she posited.Meanwhile, Women’s Health Coordinator attached to the Public Health Ministry, Dr Umadai Rattan noted that while participants are already knowledgeable on the topics, the workshop serves as a means of re- enforcement.She said more significantly, participants were educated on the use of the recently introduced anti-shock garments, as well as how to manage emergencies and emergency team work. She too stressed that the issue of maternal deaths is an important one for every country.“It’s an issue recognised worldwide…maternal health is everybody’s business. It starts at home. It’s not just for the hospital, it’s not just for the mom. It’s a community platform because when a mom dies it not only affects the family but the community and the country. So we’re asking everyone to be on board…,” she noted, citing the importance of increasing awareness.Dr Rattan said apart from theory and practical aspects, the workshop also focuses on perinatal information system, which the Government of Guyana is moving towards very soon.“We’re going to try to make the information system electronic. So if you’re a mom that’s in Lethem and you happen to come to the Georgetown or Linden Hospital and you don’t have your clinic card with you, we put in your identification number or your name and we get all of your information,” she explained.She emphasised that the training also taught key professionals how to manage as emergency first responders. Dr Rattan said the Ministry is also working on system strengthening through capacity building.last_img read more

Man United youngster hoping for Premier League opportunity after sealing Leicester loan switch

first_img1 Manchester United youngster Nick Powell Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell does not expect to walk straight in to the Leicester City side after agreeing to join them on loan for the season.Powell moved to Old Trafford from Crewe in 2012 for around £6million and spent last season on loan at Wigan where he scored the club’s first ever European goal.But, despite his pedigree, he does not expect to stroll in to Nigel Pearson’s first-team which has made a promising start despite their failure to win a match yet this season.The Foxes have two points from three games after well-fought draws against Everton and Arsenal.“I could go to the Championship and play week-in-week-out, but the Premier League is the next step and I feel like Leicester gave me that opportunity,” he told the club’s official website.“It’s a good squad – it’s powerful and has pace and is well structured and organised. I’m hoping that I’ll do well in the Premier League – the aim is to stay up.“I’ve had a chat with the manager and he said I’ve got to fit into the team and do what the boys do. I’m best suited in the No.10, in behind to get a bit of space, turn and go for the attacking option.“I can play in a number of positions – I’ll just have to try and find which one suits me best at Leicester. I’ve got to earn my way into the team first – it’s not given to you – that’s the first step.”last_img read more

THAT horror collision between Battiston and Schumacher at World Cup 82 – VIDEO

first_imgAhead of Thursday’s Euro 2016 semi-final between France and Germany, check out this horror tackle from a meeting at the 1982 World Cup. It was West Germany v France at Sevilla’s Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, with the former winning 5-4 on penalties after a 3-3 draw. It is nearly 34 years to the day since goalkeeper Harald Schumacher clattered into France’s Patrick Battiston. As he made a late run from midfield into the box, the Frenchman hit the ball past the on-running shot-stopper, his effort going just wide of the post, but he was sent crashing to the ground. As he lay still on the ground, the goalkeeper was bemused, unaware of the seriousness of the challenge, as he stood ready to take the goal-kick – see above!Battiston was stretchered off in a neck brace and he lost three teeth and is said to still be struggling with back problems as a result of the collision.Goalkeeper Schumacher escaped without punishment, going on to be the shootout hero as he saved two penalties.The nations met two years later and the pair reportedly exchanged shirts in private after the game.last_img read more
