Summary

For over 93 years La Fundacion Clinica Noel has been changing the lives of thousands of kids with different problems such as cleft lip & palate and osteogenesis imperfecta. Nowadays we give surgery to 2892 kids per year and the pain they have after de surgery can be unimaginable, as the nausea they feel but will be solved using an ultrasound machine when the kids are getting the anesthesia during the surgery.

Challenge

Approximately 5707 surgical procedures are performed each year in La Fundacion Clinica Noel, mainly to patients with cleft lip and palate and other congenital malformations such as osteogenesis imperfecta, unfortunately when children undergo surgery they have to spend a lot of time in the hospital or leave with a lot of pain , which stop us from giving more kids the opportunity to have a great quality of life.

Solution

La Fundacion Clinica Noel Gives surgery for approximately 2.892 kids every year with this proyect, these kids are going to be able to live a happier recovery thanks to the disminution of pain. This will be possible thanks to an ultrasound that will allow us to use safely and effectively regional anesthesia techniques aditional to the regular ones.

Long-Term Impact

As this machine is going to allow us to reduce the time kids are staying in the hospital, we will be able to give surgery to 15% more kids every year, this will mean more kids in Colombia and their families are going to have the opportunity to live a life full of happiness.
