THE STORY:

Sandeep Prabhu wrote -

Postpartum hemorrhage or PPH is a condition in which a mother bleeds excessively after childbirth. Even though it is completely treatable, it kills nearly 80,000 women every year in the developing world.

Childbirth at home is still common in many parts of the developing world, where any woman who bleeds uncontrollably needs to be rushed to a hospital. In these settings, a device called the NASG applies pressure on a woman’s abdomen to reduce bleeding and stabilize her. However, the NASG's lack of pressure detection capability hinders its efficacy. My colleague and I have developed a patent-pending pressure sensor device specifically to optimize NASG use. We request your support to:

        1. Fund the application for FDA approval of our device                                

       2. Fund manufacturing costs to mass produce our device for distribution in developing countries

We have already identified potential NGO partners for the implementation phase of our project.  Please support us in this quest to ensure that mothers everywhere have an equal chance at life. Thank you. Learn more about our work at www.savingsara.org

Sincerely,

Sandeep Prabhu
