Infant CPAP for low-income countries: An experimental comparison of standard bubble CPAP and the Pumani system.

Summary of "Infant CPAP for low-income countries: An experimental comparison of standard bubble CPAP and the Pumani system."

Access to inexpensive respiratory support to newborn infants improves survival in low-income countries. Standard bubble continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) has been extensively used worldwide for more than 30 years. One project aimed at providing affordable CPAP is the Pumani system developed by Rice 360°. Compared to standard bubble CPAP the system has an unconventional design. The aim was to compare the Pumani system with two traditional bubble CPAP systems, focusing on in-vitro performance and safety.

Comparison of Bubble Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) With Conventional CPAP for Extubation in Preterm Very Low Birth Weight (VLBW) Infants

The objective of this study is to evaluate whether CPAP delivered by bubble CPAP resulted in a greater proportion of infants being successfully extubated when compared with management with...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Groups that serve as a standard for comparison in experimental studies. They are similar in relevant characteristics to the experimental group but do not receive the experimental intervention.

Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.

A method of continuously holding a partially wrapped baby to the chest, involving skin-to-skin contact. Originally it was a method of caring for LOW-BIRTH-WEIGHT INFANT in developing countries and is now more widespread in developed nations. Aside from encouraging breast feeding, the extra sleep that the infant gets assists in regulating body temperature, helps the baby conserve energy, and redirects calorie expenditures toward growth and weight gain.

Deviation or aberration in the practical implementation of standard empirical procedures, distinct from MEDICAL ERRORS and SCIENTIFIC MISCONDUCT.

Experimental animal models for human AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. They include GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME (see NEURITIS, AUTOIMMUNE, EXPERIMENTAL); MYASTHENIA GRAVIS (see MYASTHENIA GRAVIS, AUTOIMMUNE, EXPERIMENTAL); and MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (see ENCEPHALOMYELITIS, AUTOIMMUNE, EXPERIMENTAL).
