Pumani bCPAP training films: Section 13 – Repairing the CPAP machine
13 training films for the PUMANI BUBBLE CPAP, an innovative low cost CPAP machine used across Africa to save the lives of babies with breathing difficulties.
The last in a set of 13 films forming a training course for the Pumani Bubble CPAP, an innovative low cost CPAP machine used to save the lives of babies with breathing difficulties. This film shows how to do simple repairs on the CPAP machine, changing the diaphragm of the air pumps.
Other films cover how to identify babies that will benefit from CPAP, how to attach them to the machine, how to monitor and care for babies on CPAP and how to maintain the machine.
Originally developed by students from Rice University, Texas, the low cost Pumani Bubble CPAP is now being rolled out across Africa, and is becoming a basic piece of equipment in many hospitals and health centres. The CPAP project is run by Rice 360˚ Institute for Global Health Technologies and Hadleigh Health Technologies, with funding from USAID.
