Pumani bCPAP

The Pumani bCPAP is a low-cost respiratory support device used in the treatment of respiratory illness in infants and young children. The Pumani provides a steady stream of pressurized air into the patient’s lungs to prevent lung collapse and to improve oxygenation. The Pumani has been proven to provide the same level of therapeutic pressure as other commercial bCPAPs. A clinical study of the Pumani in a neonatal ward in Malawi showed that the device improved survival rates by 27 per cent. Over 100 Pumanis have been distributed in tertiary and secondary level hospitals in Malawi, Indonesia, Pakistan and Haiti, and additional units will be distributed in Tanzania, Zambia and South Africa in 2015.
