The SSEM Mthembu Medical stand at SASA 2014, which was held at Sun City, was setup by Andrew Mohale and his assistant the Thursday before. They did an excellent job. Well done on a perfect stand, Andrew!
On Friday, the first day of the congress, Elsabe Froneman (Ultrasound Division) presented a well-attended workshop on ‘Ultrasound. On the same day, Shade’ Potgieter, Zelda  van Staden and Peter Burchell held a workshop on 'Difficult Airway Management’, and received a lot of interest in Verathon’s Glidescope, Ambu’s new A-Scope and King Vision, and difficult airway consumables.

During the course of SASA which ran through the weekend until Wednesday, the SSEM stand received a steady flow of visitors, with interest equally spread across the many ranges SSEM had on show, including the Ultrasound and Difficult Airway Management products, as well as Nonin’s regional Oximeter and  the new Ambu Aura Gain.

Brett de Beer, who heads SSEM’s Patient Monitoring and Theatre Equipment division reported a lot of interest in the various theatre beds, Nihon Kohden patient monitors and defibrillators and Aeonmed Anaesthetics machines.

On Tuesday night, the SASA banquet was held, with Peter Burchell, SSEM’s national sales director, Royden Peirone, and Brett de Beer attending. During the course of proceedings, SSEM presented Dr Francois Roodt with the SSEM Academic Prize for his award winning paper on Anaesthetics. SSEM has proudly sponsored the Competition for several years running.

Wednesday afternoon marked the closing of the congress and the packing up of our stand. SSEM would like to thank all staff who participated and the many visitors who attended and helped make the congress the successful event it turned out to be.
