PIRA

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.

JURY STATEMENT

If the process and especially the interface really works, this concept is definitely an improvement of an existing situation.

WINNER STATEMENT

We were both proud and honored to receive the iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD. It means a lot to know that all the hard work we put into the project has been appreciated and recognized. This award gives us a great boost and optimism to face our future design challenges.
