According to a statement from the guardianship, which VerAngola had access to, the implementation took place this week. "Hospital Geral de Cabinda implemented dialysis with the OMNI machine (B/BRAUN) for the first time in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)", reads the note.
OMNI, adds the note, consists of a "platform for extracorporeal blood purification therapies that, in addition to hemodialysis, is capable of performing other therapies such as continuous intrafiltration, hemodiafiltration, absorption therapies, plasmapheresis and even pulmonary support therapies, such as carbon dioxide".
Thus, in a single system, "OMNI provides flexibility, security, performance and usability in an agile and simplified way", reads the note.
With regard to training, the general director of the General Hospital of Cabinda, Welema Cipriano da Fonseca – quoted in another note from the Ministry of Health, which VerAngola had access to – recently reported that 277 doctors "are being trained in 42 specialties" in the said hospital unit.
According to the official, doctors "are being trained in the specialties of anesthesia and resuscitation, cardiology, cardiac surgery, endocrinology, family medicine, oncology, adult and pediatric surgery, pneumology, urology, clinical pathology, gynecology and obstetrics, internal medicine, general care, intensive care, orthopedics, neonatology, infectious diseases, psychiatry, angiology, among other specialties".
