A therapy known as Bubble CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) is a simple and affordable way to deliver effective respiratory treatment for children who suffer from life-threatening respiratory illnesses, but when the nasal interface responsible for delivering life-sustaining oxygen therapy does not fit, the therapy is compromised.
