Engineering World Health (EWH) infant respiratory rate monitor

Design Award

  • Tong Biomedical Design Award Honorable Mention

Project Overview

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is responsible for thousands of deaths each year in developing countries. We would like to develop a low cost and highly reliable detection system that could alert nearby adults when breathing stops, giving them a chance to wake or resuscitate the infant. The device must be able to detext breathing pauses of 20 seconds or more and output an audible alarm signal when that happens.
