There is always someone with an innovative idea on every trip, and this trip it was Eddie. Jairo Eduardo Castillo, MD, from Yale New Haven Hospital offered us the chance for our students to follow a patient from start to finish. What an amazing idea! Jeanette and Bruna started in anesthesia intake, through induction (going to sleep), surgery, waking up from anesthesia, post-anesthesia care unit and into mom’s/dad’s arms.
Eddie and his wife, Amparo, grew up in Colombia, and are so happy to have the opportunity to give back. They are devoted to the children of Colombia, and to Healing the Children, Northeast. But on this trip, the biggest gift Eddie gave was to our students.
