<br /> <br /> Invented by Hakko Medical<br /> Saving lives through safer surgery<br /> Let’s save lives together.<br /> Imagine administering anesthesia to your patient without the use of a pulse oximeter.<br /> In more than 77,000 operating rooms across the developing world, your colleagues have no alternative –<br /> it’s just too expensive. Access is the most significant barrier to widespread pulse oximetry use.<br /> A $250 donation to Lifebox puts this essential safety device into the hands of colleagues who<br /> need it most. Each pulse oximeter comes with training materials and a WHO Surgical Safety Checklist,<br /> shown to significantly reduce operating room complications and mortality rates.<br /> When you donate a pulse oximeter, you’re making an investment that will save lives for years to come.<br /> Become a part of the Lifebox mission.<br /> Visit us at www.asahq.org/gho/lifebox to don<a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=1"> </a> <a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=2"> Invented by Hakko Medical</a> <a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 3" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=3"> Saving lives through safer surgery </a> <a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 4" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=4"> Volume 75, Number 8 August 2011 E</a> <a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 5" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=5"> Does the anesthesiologist's or CRNA's signature h</a> <a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 6" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=6"> from the crow’s nest from the crow’s nest </a> <a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 7" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=7"> Title small amount in a handkerchief inhaled</a> <a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 8" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=8"> administrative update Will Health Care Reform Pr</a> <a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 9" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=9"> boundaries” to take ownership of our patients’ pr</a> <a title="August 2011 ASA Newsletter page 10" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/8c73a46a?page=10"> Volume 27B Available Now!
