Breath of Life from Medical Innovator

UK-born NZer, Norma McCulloch, was named one of the world’s top 1 female inventors at the Global Women’s Innovator and Inventor awards held in Britain as well as the British Female Inventor of the Year Award. McCulloch’s innovation – a hand-held resuscitator called the ‘Breath of Life’ – has won her 12 international awards, as well as accolades from within academic and medical fields. “At one point my family had to sell everything we owned to cover the cost of development and the world-wide patents […] At times I did question whether it was worth it. I’m glad that I’ve persisted.”
