While the COVID-19 situation is still evolving, we are doing everything we can to help healthcare providers in LMICs be prepared to provide life-saving care to patients in need. With this in mind, we have developed a comprehensive tele-education series to provide remote trainings and a platform for discussion and the sharing of best practices in caring for COVID-19 patients in low-resource settings.

In collaboration with Assist International and Stanford Global Anesthesia, we are honored to invite you to participate in our series - The Oxygen Series: Care of Pediatric and Adult Patients. Designed for all learners, including students, bioengineers, trainees, nurses, and physicians, this series aims to increase preparedness of all providers caring for patients who need oxygen. 

Objectives of this course include: Increase providers' knowledge and confidence in detecting hypoxemia, using pulse oximetry to triage patient care, safely delivering oxygen to pediatric and adult patients, understanding oxygen delivery devices, managing the oxygen supply chain, and essential device management.
