Because the lungs are the last organ to develop, premature babies are often born with respiratory problems. Most commonly neonates have difficulties keeping their lungs open and expelling any fluid build-up. A simple solution is for clinicians to apply Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). We have expanded upon this concept to create a system that heats, humidifies and pressurizes air for multiple neonates at once. Our device is specifically designed to support neonate respiration in low resource countries and we have been creating this design while focusing on its simplicity, durability, and cost.
