The sixth 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 uses a doll to show how to attach a baby to the CPAP machine. Other films cover how to identify babies that will benefit from CPAP, how to monitor and care for babies on CPAP, how to wean them off, 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.
