Guyana Help The Kids

Biomedical Program

In November, 2013, the Guyana Help the Kids Organisation conducted a five (5) day Biomedical Training workshop. Mr. Mike Weirmer – Dragger Consultant and Mr. Kelly Pearce – CEO, Liftronics /Respiratory Therapist were the lead instructors for the course. All technicians from the GPHC department and those from the regional sites were invited to participate in the training which was aimed at the sustainability of technical support and preventative maintenance to all medical equipment introduced to the NICU.

Since this training was conducted, one biomedical technician has been working with the GHTK organisation to assist with technical support at both GPHC and regional hospitals.
