Sometimes premature babies have stiff lungs and need a bit of help to breath. CPAP machines provide a mix of air and oxygen with a bit of pressure. In the developed world new CPAP machines can cost thousands of pounds. The Pumani bubble CPAP was developed by biomedical engineering students from RICE University in Texas working with clinicians in Malawi. They came up with an easy maintenance machine at a fraction the price, which uses aquarium pumps to provide the pressure. The Pumani is now used across Africa.
