At the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, ghana, exchange transfusions are performed manually in the mother baby unit (MBU). Currently, these transfusions take multiple hours to perform. Because an automated process is absent, a doctor or nurse must be present throughout the entire transfusion to constantly turn valves and administer or remove blood from syringes.

The goal of this project is to design a low-cost, easy to operate, automated exchange transfusion device to increase the number of available human resources in the MBU, thus providing doctors and nurses with more time to care for other patients.
