Are you treating an infant in respiratory distress but you don't have access to a ventilator? Do you have a patient with a complicated pleural effusion but you don't have a chest tube drainage system? Providers working in resource-limited settings must routinely modify the way they perform procedures using available supplies and creative problem solving and these video PEARLS (Procedural Education for Adaptation to Resource-Limited Settings) organize and disseminate some of these strategies for performing procedures in resource-limited settings. Each procedure has 2 video components – an instructional video that provides a step-by-step walk through and a demonstration video to see the skill operationalized. Get started with SUGAR PEARLS here.
