Though there were some US machines available, only the outstanding picture quality of my Clarius L7 made TAP blocks possible.

For the first time I have been part of the pediatric urology team which visited Asmara in November 2018. We treated a lot of little patients this week with urological disorders. More than 40 children underwent open surgery and I could provide the ultrasound guided regional anesthesia for postoperative pain treatment.
Though there were some US machines available, only the outstanding picture quality of my Clarius L7 made TAP blocks possible. This worked better I expected and made happy patients and a happy me. As I took my scanner in the hand luggage there were no additional costs to the team, which is very important in this missions because we try to give the best standard in care in this very poor country and therefore we have to take many necessary things with us. For me as an anesthetist, ultrasound is necessary to provide good analgesia and whenever I go back to Africa I surely will take my Clarius with me.
