A 24 Country Flight for Every Mother: Maternova Research partners with Dr. Sophia Webster

October 29, 2016

A 24 Country Flight for Every Mother: Maternova Research partners with Dr. Sophia Webster

We are so excited to announce our partnership with [Flight for Every Mother](http://www.flightforeverymother.com/). Dr. Sophia Webster is a 21st century Amelia Earheart with a mission for mothers. She is a flying obstetrician/gynecologist making a 24 country flight piloting her own Cessna to deliver knowledge and supplies to obstetricians and midwives. And she leaves in August!

We love her approach because it is one part advocacy and two parts practicality. Maternova Research will be sending life-saving obstetric supplies including the non-pneumatic anti-shock garment. We’ll also be working with Dr. Webster on how best to communicate the steps involved in creating the lowest cost balloon tamponade on the planet—the condom balloon tamponade.

What is particularly exciting about this journey is that it allows all of us to receive feedback, in rapid succession from a range of obstetricians and midwives working in the most difficult settings to save lives. Dr. Webster will be raising awareness but she will also be teaching. The clinicians will have a chance to provide direct feedback on protocols and technologies. What set of interventions is most appropriate for massive bleeding and shock in their settings? What does the government recommend? What is the protocol for eclampsia? We look forward to amplifying these voices as the Flight for Every Mother happens.

We are raising funds for life-saving technologies to be carried by Dr. Webster and her team via our new non-profit affiliate,[(Maternova Research](http://maternova.net/announcing-maternova-research-non-profit-affiliate-maternova).

We are also using our networks to help Dr. Webster and her team find the best partners to visit during their journey. Please send us ideas!

Helmet CPAP respiratory circuits provide intermediate COVID-19 treatment before ventilators
Helmet CPAP respiratory circuits provide intermediate COVID-19 treatment before ventilators

March 15, 2021

Intermediate solutions to increase positive airway pressure and increase oxygen are in demand in order to keep patients off ventilators and provide an alternative means of treatment when nasal cannula fail and a patient is hypoxemic or at risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).  To put this in a layperson's terms, the pressure exerted by this Helmet CPAP respiratory circuit can actually keep parts of the patients' lungs open, even with very little oxygen flow.
