Laperoscopy hook up
What an exciting day! Yesterday and today Dan, Ed, and I worked on hooking up all the pieces of the Laperoscopy machine. Today was the test run on a goat in the OR. Where else but Africa?!! Instead of using CO2, we are using a Craftsman air compressor with the compressed air running through a water and oil filter to clean up the air before going into the machine. The final product worked great with only a few minor glitches. Tonight I have to work on a couple of the instruments that are used in the cauterization process which should be no problem. By the way, the goat is doing fine.
