Lima, Peru Hand Help Trip Day 4 - Today was the fourth day in Lima, Peru, and our second OR day! We would like to introduce the anesthesia team for this trip, which is made up of Marcia Bergen, Giselle Torres, Jakov Reytbblat, and Denise Franko. Marcia has been the fearless leader of the anesthesia team for many years and has been on Hand Help missions for fifteen years! We were delighted to find state of the art anesthesia machines in the ORs, and have very much enjoyed having Peruvian anesthesiologists to work with. Today, between the four ORs, we completed 17 cases, working from 7AM until after 8PM.  The long days really whet our appetite for the delicious Peruvian cuisine :)
