Medical students visited the Texas State Capitol last month and presented Senator Dawn Buckingham (SOM '97) with a print of Old Red.

Construction of a landmark Health Education Center where students can train in settings that mimic the realities of patient care is the center of the new Innovations in Mind Initiative.

UTMB Professor/Alumnus Develops Smart-Oxygenation-System

UTMB alumnus and professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, Dr. Michael Kinsky (SOM '99) has designed a device that monitors how much oxygen is being provided to a patient and can alert staff when the amount crosses a certain threshold.

The Smart-Oxygenation-System (SOS) can improve lung function and care by reducing the reaction time to a bad situation.

One of the main features of this autonomous system is the ability to reduce the number of personnel needed to treat each patient.

"You don't need a clinician or responder dialing a knob to make sure a patient is getting the right amount of oxygen," Kinsky said.  "They could be somewhere else saving lives."



Faculty Members Inspire Giving

Associate dean in the School of Medicine, Dr. Michael Ainsworth (SOM '81) and wife Dr. Karen Szauter, medical director of the Office of Clinical Simulation enjoy talking about their work and the passion they share for giving back to UTMB.

Their latest philanthropic effort includes support for the construction of the new Health Education Center which is part of the university's Innovations in Mind initiative.

Both physicians agree that support of the initiative is a great way to get involved and invest in the growth and continued success of the institution and its mission.
