CLIP (Community-Level Interventions for Pre-eclampsia)
Research group: University of British Columbia and Child & Family Research Institute
Project: Community-Level Interventions for Pre-Eclampsia (CLIP)
Funder: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Saving Lives At Birth (through Grand Challenges Canada)
LGTmedical's software-defined pulse oximeter technology is being used in a UBC research project, Community-Level Interventions for Pre-eclampsia (CLIP), in Nigeria, Pakistan, India, and Mozambique. Together, these four countries bear over half the global burden of maternal and newborn deaths.
This trial is part of a larger project, Pre-eclampsia and Eclampsia Monitoring, Prevention & Treatment (PRE-Empt) to develop and test new strategies to reduce the death toll from the condition. Led by Dr. Peter von Dadelszen, a Senior Clinician Scientist at the Child & Family Research Institute at BC Children’s Hospital it includes researchers, clinicians and experts in Africa, Asia, the Pacific, Europe, and North and South America.
The GOAL of the CLIP trial is to reduce pre-eclampsia related maternal and perinatal mortality that derive from the failure to identify and rapidly manage pre-eclampsia and eclampsia at the community level.
