CSU-ALS / CALS in Africa

 

In 2017 Joel Dunning went to South Africa on the invitation of the innovative minimal access cardiac surgeon, Dr Johan Van der Meuwe. He and Johan did the first Provider course and then Train the Trainer course at Netcare , Blaauwberg Hospital, Capetown, South Africa.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After this Netcare Blaauwberg Hospital became the first CALS Centre of Excellence in South Africa, holding their first successful course in 2018. Since this time Dr Johan Van der Meuwe has worked to get the CALS guidelines accepted by the Resuscitation Council of South Africa and to work collaboratively with us to modify them to the different working environment of cardiac surgery in South Africa.

 

In 2019 Cardiac Anesthesiologist  Dr Kevin Okech took part in a CALS provider Course in India whilst a cardiac anesthetic trainee at a large unit in Bengalaru. Knowing that this would benefit his patients on his return to Kenya he decided to arrange with the help of Dr Russ White (Cardiothoracic Surgeon at Tenwek Mission Hospital , Kenya) a CALS provider and train the trainer course in Tenwek. This will take place in June 2020 making Tenwek Mission the second CALS centre of Excellence in Africa.
