Pumani Clinical Study

In 2012, results of the Pumani clinical trial conducted at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) in Blantyre, Malawi, showed that use of the Pumani to treat neonatal respiratory distress resulted in 27% absolute improvement in survival, as compared to patients treated with oxygen therapy.

Survival Rates for Neonates with Respiratory Distress


Pumani units have been distributed to over 35 countries worldwide.
The Pumani bubbleCPAP is recognized by the Million Lives Collective for its health impacts on over a million babies.


The Development of Pumani has been a collaboration between Hadleigh Health Technologies, Rice University, Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, the Malawian Ministry of Health, and Texas Children’s Hospital. Based on the results from clinical testing, the Pumani partners received additional funding to distribute Pumani units to every public central and district hospital in Malawi.
