Vital Signs and Heimlich

IMG_1813

 

We had a wonderful turnout of Promotores in Atengo, many from remote rural areas, very far from services.  The poverty of these small villages is stark and roads are narrow and bumpy.  Having a skilled health worker nearby with a well equipped medical kit will mean the difference between life and death.

Signos Vitales y Maniobra de Heimlich

Tuvimos muy buenos resultados (leer mas)con los Promotores en Atengo, muchos de ellos de áreas rurales muy remotas, muy lejanas de servicios médicos. La pobreza en estas pequeñas comunidades es notoria, los caminos de acceso son angostos e irregulares. El tener a un trabajador de salud a mano, con un botiquín bien equipado, puede significar la diferencia entre la vida y la muerte.
