Inspira’s solution creates a new standard of respiratory care. The company’s innovative technology elevates the blood oxygen saturation levels and offers immediate relief while the patient is fully awake, avoiding the need for mechanical ventilation (MV). This revolutionary approach extends treatment beyond the ICU, giving hope to millions.

Healthcare professionals treating respiratory failure face a challenging dilemma that limits the quality of treatment they can offer patients. They must choose between insufficient supplemental therapies with a 50% failure rate and unnecessary, high-risk mechanical ventilation.
Supplemental solutions, which include nasal, BPAP, CPAP, and other therapies, may keep patients awake and breathing spontaneously, but create high lung pressure, causing discomfort at best and failing to offer relief at worst.
The MV treatment path poses significant avoidable medical risks. It requires traumatic intubation that exposes the patient to complications, must be performed by numerous expert clinicians, and places the patient in a coma for an unknown period. The post-treatment ordeal often includes a lengthy and costly weaning process, during which patients are away from their loved ones and remain dependent on ICU staff and infrastructure.
These preventable risks are unrelated to the original cause of respiratory failure and might have severe implications that could affect the patient’s health and wellbeing for years to come.
Inspira’s solution removes these risks and offers a new and innovative path that bridges the respiratory treatment gap.
Inspira’s breakthrough oxygenation ART solution creates a new standard of first-line support for patients who suffer from deteriorating oxygen saturation levels. The company forms an entirely new category for treating respiratory failure.
A minimally invasive cannula is inserted into the jugular vein through a standard medical procedure that resembles a central line or an IV insertion. The system draws a liter of blood, removes CO2, and returns it highly oxygenated to the circulatory system while the patient remains awake.
This simple process is based on a comprehensive portfolio of patents and innovations. It reduces the burden on the patient’s lungs, offering immediate relief by elevating the oxygen saturation levels within a single minute. Inspira’s technology uses an automatic priming system and a user-friendly disposable cartridge. The blood-circulating pump and dual lumen cannula have been designed to prevent hemolysis and thrombosis.
With Inspira’s solution, respiratory distress patients are comforted and receive fast, effective treatment while breathing spontaneously. This essential solution extends respiratory care beyond the ICU, reducing treatment costs by 70% and saving millions of lives each year.
Inspira’s core technology has been proven through a series of preclinical trials. The company continues to build its patent portfolio and form collaborations with industry leaders and strategic partner hospitals.
The company’s journey started long before it was formally founded and its vision was born out of necessity.
Udi Nussinovitch, the company’s Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer, combined his medical studies with an active-duty service in the IDF. When one of Udi’s military friends suffered from pneumonia and was hospitalized in an intensive care unit, it was clear that an appropriate solution was unavailable.
Witnessing a young person with no background diseases offered such invasive treatment with high-risk complications continued to bother Udi as he joined the Israeli Navy and supported the respiratory challenges of professional divers. The need for a far less invasive solution was evident, and Inspira was built to find it.
