In Malawi, when a newborn is suffering from respiratory distress, he or she is typically provided extra oxygen via tubes placed gently in the nose. But doctors don’t add air pressure to help inflate the infant’s lungs.
The first clinical study demonstrated that the device increased the survival rate of newborns with severe respiratory illness from 44 percent to 71 percent.
One of the most successful projects for Rice 360 has been the bubble CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure). It helps premature infants breathe by pushing a steam of air into their lungs.
