Breath of Life Foundation News
The following are postings regarding the OstreaVent Ventilator and our foundation
About 20 years ago, I was asked to make rounds in the nursery of a government hospital and in the course of my rounds, I noticed a 12 year old girl manually ventilating a premature infant with an inflatable bag.

A Gift That Keeps On Giving
The OstreaVent is a Philippine made invention that gives the sick, newborn infants a chance in life!
Somewhere in a distant, poor hospital in the province,
a sick infant lies on a bed without an incubator,
and only a lamp to give him heat.
An anxious and grateful father watches an OstreaVent
help his sick newborn infant to breathe.
No more endless Ambu bagging for the infant to survive.
