Inspira Technologies Shares Up After Development of Non-Invasive Blood Sensor Designed to Alert Real-Time Change in Patients
Jul 6, 2022 By MarketDepth
Inspira Technologies Oxy B.H.N. Ltd. (NASDAQ: IINN) share up more than 86% after the Company announced 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.
“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.”Announcement by the company
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.
