Student Fundraiser Profiled as ‘Good News’ by Television Station


Nearly 70 percent of operations around the world are performed without the help of a basic medical device that can mean the difference between life and death for the patient. South University, Savannah Master of Science in Anesthesia Science students recently raised money to send the equipment to more than a dozen hospitals around the globe.

The students held a fundraiser to support Lifebox, an organization that sends pulse oximeters to hospitals in countries that lack sophisticated operating room equipment. Pulse oximeters measure the amount of oxygen in a person’s blood. Low oxygen levels can lead to a series of complications including organ and brain damage.

The students raised more than $4,000 for Lifebox, and their efforts caught the attention of a local television station. To see the story about their efforts, please visit:
