Pneumonia is a major killer of infants and children in lower income settings. Antibiotics are often the only treatment because oxygen therapy is simply out of reach for the majority of the population. With an extremely affordable oxygen therapy device, the Inspire team is looking to change this. (Inspire Medical) [http://inspiremedical.org], a team at Stanford University, has created a low-cost breathing assistant for the treatment of pneumonia and other forms of respiratory distress. The team has spun out its own organization called Inspire Medical . The usual treatment, Bubble CPAP, relies on pressurized oxygen and is expensive and dangerous to use in rural areas.
