Edmondson Family – Medical Missions Outreach

Medical Missions

Our first-ever fundraiser was a huge success! 

Huge thanks to our many generous donors who were involved in our 2023 Black Tie Gala! Enough was given to completely cover our current equipment needs, and even shipping! Scroll on to see specifics on the items purchased from our Journey Gala last month…

ANESTHESIA GAS MONITOR

The anesthesia gas monitor measures the most commonly used anesthetic gasses, and measures the amount of gas received by the patient.

ELECTROSURGICAL UNIT

The electrosurgical unit allows the surgeon to cut tissue while controlling bleeding during surgery.

SUCTION PUMP

The suction pump allows the surgeon to free the site of any fluid obstructing their view.

SURGICAL MICROSCOPE

The surgical microscope is used to remove cataracts. Cataracts are a common cause of blindness in Honduras.

ORTHOPEDIC DRILL SET

The orthopedic drill set allows the surgeon to remove hardware, and repair fractures and ligaments.

EARLY CALENDAR ACCESS FOR 2024

The 2024 Trip Calendar is finalized, and we are getting ready for our exclusive early calendar release to MMO Tribe members. Join The Tribe to access this year’s calendar early! Our full launch will take place on June 1 at 4PM EDT. We can’t wait to share where we’ll be serving next year!

A BIG THANKS TO OUR MINISTRY SPONSORS 

In honor of National Nurses Week earlier this month, we want to take a moment and highlight an amazing non-profit that has been an incredible blessing to many providers who have served with us The Upward Twist

This Nashville-based non-profit makes a huge difference around the world by serving those who serve. They specialize in funding medical professionals to go out and give care around the world, and aided in sending four of our medical professionals on this recent trip to Bangkok, Thailand.
