We are getting prepared for our big day. Our first open heart surgery very-very soon. This i suppose will be the landmark of how my current centre will be. We have currently doing great things with the neuro team and now the cardiac team is set to go.
The OT staff themselves are excited but at the same time having palpitations. Its not something trivial as the preparation must be perfect. This reminds me of the time when we prepared for our first case in UiTM. It was nerve wrecking preparing for the day. Its not just the equipment and number of staff, it is also the mindset of the whole team. One thing for sure is once this gets started, there will be no turning back!
Its not just the OT, but the ICU staffs are gearing up themselves for the start. They've been working hard these past few months because of the neuro cases we have been handling. I must say they did really well to cope with all that. Now another frontier is beckoning.
Alhamdulillah, i must say the team we have is a good one. Both surgeon's are of recommended reputation. I have an experienced perfusionist and at the same time, enthusiastic nurses who are ready for any challenge any day!
Lets do it!! Bismillah..
