Inspira™ Technologies Develops a Non-Invasive Blood Sensor Designed to Alert Real-Time Change in Patients – Potentially Targets $2.5 Billion ABG Market
HYLA™ blood sensor intends to reduce the need for actual blood samples to be taken from patients
July 06, 2022
Ra’anana, Israel– Inspira™ Technologies OXY B.H.N. Ltd. (Nasdaq: IINN, IINNW) (the “Company” or “Inspira Technologies”), a groundbreaking respiratory support technology company, revealed the development of the HYLA™ blood sensor. Without the need to take actual blood samples from patients, Inspira’s non-invasive optical blood sensor is being designed to perform real-time and continuous blood monitoring to alert physicians of immediate signs of changes in a patient’s clinical condition. The HYLA blood sensor is targeting the potential $2.5 billion Point of Care testing, ABG (Arterial Blood Gas) analyzer market.
Optical sensor based on machine-learning algorithms
The non-invasive HYLA blood sensor is being developed by a team of cyber-warfare specialists who formerly served in the Israeli Defense Forces’ elite cyber-attack special forces. The HYLA blood sensor is being designed as a new platform based on key technologies being developed for Inspira’s ART™ system, designed to reduce the need for invasive mechanical ventilation. Like the ART system, the HYLA blood sensor is designed to minimize the need for invasive medical procedures with the intention of reducing risks, complications and costs.
Expanding Market Growth Opportunities
The HYLA™ non-invasive blood sensor is attached to the outer walls of a tube that has blood flowing through it. The HYLA blood sensor may have broad application potential, benefiting patients undergoing procedures including intensive care unit (ICU) monitoring (approximately 40% of patients have a standard arterial line), Invasive Mechanical Ventilation, Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), Dialysis and Cardiopulmonary bypass. Targeted patient populations can potentially include those suffering from acute respiratory failure, cardiac failure, pneumonia, acute kidney injury (AKI), as well as patients undergoing open-heart surgery.
Real-time patient monitoring can potentially save lives
Currently, in order to identify changes in a patient’s medical condition, frequent invasive blood tests are needed. As a non-invasive real-time blood sensor, the HYLA is expected to reduce the need for frequent invasive blood tests.
The HYLA blood sensor is expected to continuously measure several key indicators such as the levels of partial oxygen and carbon dioxide pressures, known to be precise indicators of health disorders and patient deterioration.
Dagi Ben-Noon, Inspira™ Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer, stated:
“Inspira Technologies has set out to change the way we monitor patient health. Today, hospital patients are reliant on physicians manually monitoring their health condition with invasive blood tests, as much as several times a day. We believe that the HYLA blood sensor has the potential to change patient experience and outcomes, through the non-invasive blood sensor, that is intended to perform real-time and continuous blood monitoring, with the intention of alerting physicians of changes in a patient’s clinical condition that could potentially save lives.”
This technology has not been tested or used in humans and is subject to regulatory approval.
Inspira Technologies OXY B.H.N. Ltd.
Inspira Technologies is an innovative medical technology company in the respiratory treatment arena. The Company has developed a breakthrough Augmented Respiration Technology (ART), designed to rebalance patient oxygen saturation levels. The Company’s ART™ technology potentially allows patients to remain awake during treatment while minimizing the need for highly invasive, risky, and costly mechanical ventilation systems that require intubation and medically induced coma. The Company’s product has not yet been tested or used in humans and has not been approved by any regulatory entity.
