Pulse Oximeter Request Form
Our Safe Surgery Initiative aims to improve access to safe surgery in low-resource settings using volunteer surgery teams like yours to place pulse oximeters and to train health care workers on their use for perioperative patient monitoring.
If approved, you are required to leave the donated pulse oximeters at your in-country facility so that they can be used year-round, regardless of the presence of a visiting medical team.
Medical Outreach Photo Releases
We ask that you take Americares photo release forms with you on your trip and ask patients to sign a release form acknowledging their consent. When photographing pediatric patients, a parent or legal guardian must sign on behalf of the child.
Photographs from the field play a key role in Americares work. They help us make a compelling case to donors who contribute medical products and funding.
Tip: Upload your photo releases as a pdf or .jpeg along with your photos when completing your post trip field report
