WAU, SOUTH SUDAN, Feb. 10 (ChinaMil) -- The Chinese peacekeeping hospital in South Sudan (Wau) set up assisting relationship days ago with a local health school to help train students from the school.
As part of the training program, about 20 nursing students, who will soon graduate, visited the Chinese peacekeeping hospital in the United Nations House in Wau in early February. They toured the hospital’s outpatient, medical support and surgical operation departments.
In the intensive care unit (ICU), doctor Wu Bo, a member of the 7th Chinese peacekeeping medical detachment, explained to the students the operational procedures of the ICU and instructions of the medical instruments.
Doctors in the outpatient department demonstrated how to operate the electrocardiograph (ECG), while students were also shown how to use a portable color Doppler ultrasound machine.
Other medical equipment and instruments demonstrated included an anesthesia machine, respirator, defibrillator, multi-functional ECG monitor and micro pump.
Director of the Chinese peacekeeping hospital Xiao Shuwen, who is also head of the 7th Chinese peacekeeping medical detachment, said the detachment would do its best to offer assistance to local medical schools and hospitals during its year-long mission in Wau.
“We hope that the local medical condition can be improved as soon as possible, and more and more local patients can be treated timely and properly,” Xiao added.
Since its deployment in Sept 2016, the 7th Chinese peacekeeping medical detachment has offered professional assistance to local medical institutions including St Mary’s Nursing College and the Wau Teaching Hospital.
