In Nigeria, over 90,000 babies die from neonatal asphyxia every year. These deaths can be prevented through early intervention by healthcare professionals using a Bubble Continuous Positive Airway Pressure device (B-CPAP) which provide effective treatment for newborns with respiratory distress. However, with a commercial cost of up to $2000 USD, it is inaccessible to the majority of primary and secondary healthcare centres.
Bubble Box is a kit that contains an ultra-low cost version of the Bubble CPAP device that does not require electricity to operate. It is easily portable, requires less than 5 minutes set up time and is compatible with any oxygen outlet available in the market. It comes with a training and support programme to ensure safe implementation and use by healthcare workers at all levels of healthcare.
