The anesthesia machine at our mission hospital has bitten the dust and we need to replace it. Without it, all we have is spinal block anesthesia, which suffices for below-the-belt surgeries (C-Sections, hernias, and lower extremity surgeries, and the like) but we need general anesthesia for pretty much everything else. International Aid has a refurbished unit for us (pictured here) for $3,000. The other option would be to get a $20 mallet, which patients do not care for. Most mallet anesthesia patients wake up with zinger headaches.
