“Before the CPAP and LED Phototherapy were introduced to Myanmar, many babies could not get proper treatment and would either get sick or die. Because of this program, we are now able to treat very low birthweight babies and avoid many exchange transfusions for jaundice. They are experts and really understand our challenges here.” Dr. Nant San San Aye – Clinical Professor of Neonatology, Central Women’s Hospital, Yangon
“I was scared to come to the hospital because so many babies are sick when they come back or never come back at all. When I came, the doctor gave me information on what was wrong with my son and why he was going to be under the light. The nurse also showed me how to clean my hands and take care for my son under the light. My son is getting better and I am not scared of the hospital anymore.” Ms. – AyeMother of baby treated at Naypyitaw 1000 Bedded Hospital SCBU (2014)
“So far, CPAP is still the best device we have to treat neonatal respiratory distress. The machine is part of a state-of-the-art equipment package, including a phototherapy machine and an infant warmer. This MTTS equipment has helped us in saving a number of infants in our province, which brings happiness to not only their families but also ourselves as health practitioners of a remote area with limited access to modern health technology” Dr. Nguyen Thi Minh – Head of Pediatrics Dept., Yen Minh Referral Hospital, Ha Giang province
