    Kanga - Mobile Resuscitation Kit by Darja Wendel

    The project aims to improve the process of newborn resuscitation in developing countries. Simple interventions can save many of these lives. The Kanga mobile resuscitation kit is designed to guide the caregiver during resuscitation, helping to reduce the time to ventilation, while enabling to keep the mother and baby close during this critical time.
