I wanted to thank the dozens of people and centers who helped me set up one of the first cardiothoracic programs in Uganda and Ethiopia which included trauma and autotransfusion.
Also, the donated 540's went all over the world supporting H1N1 V-V ECMO. In fact all 11 modules are in use- with one doing a VAD the day it arrived in the hospital- first capability. Including the one 520 module- a venerable unit, as back up (as expected, mint condition cared for by skilled perfusionists).
And never forget the Perfusion Without Borders resource through AmSECT. This is, as it should be, a key coordination center.
We give a lot of energy, but we know we can give just a bit more when the need arises.
