Lonny Ashworth Welcome Back

Today has seen the return of Lonny Ashworth to our hospital, on this occasion, teaching the new first year residents about the use of ventilators.

Lonny has 33 years of ventilator experience and currently works at the Boise State University, USA.

Over the next few days, he will also be teaching nursing staff from around Japan about ventilator usage and they will be able to get hands on experience of modern ventilators and how
to manipulate the machine settings to provide optimal respiratory care for sick patients.

Lonny's knowledge of these machines and the physics / mechanics is just amazing and it is very worthwhile experiencing his annual visits to Japan.
