CPAP Ventilation System
PIRA is a CPAP ventilation system to assist pre-term infants during the first minutes of life with warm and humid air, avoiding the overuse of mechanical ventilation during the resuscitation process in a safe, harmless and reliable way. It’s easy and quick to fixate by a single person and puts all the necessary data in a hand-held device to make the right decision on when to “puff ventilate” until the patient is stabilized and ready for a longterm CPAP treatment.
If the process and especially the interface really works, this concept is definitely an improvement of an existing situation.WINNER STATEMENT
