Low-Cost Maternal and Infant Mechanical Ventilators for Developing Countries

Jussi Saukkonen of Boston University School of Medicine and Alex Slocum of Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the U.S. will develop and test low-cost mechanical ventilators for infants in resource-poor settings. The use of simple parts and low-cost technology, along with small size and battery power, will allow for ease of use in remote locations.
