A medical device company founded by physicians and engineers at Stanford University and designer of a portable ventilator

OneBreath is an international medical device company founded by physicians and engineers at Stanford University.

OneBreath designed a ventilator for use in ICUs, emergency rooms an ambulances to proved continuous respiratory support for infants to adult patients. The device is optimized for low resource environments and for use by novice or advanced users. The device is portable and runs on a 12-volt battery for 6-12 hours. The OneBreath ventilator has a sensor that is used with software to calculate how much air is in the patient’s lungs and directs the compressor to deliver more air through a valve system. The system can also sense when a patient is beginning to be able to breathe on their own and will supply less air. OneBreath’s ventilators are not available for sale as of March 2020 but the company stated that they are working to enable future provisions of their ventilators to treat COVID-19 and similar outbreaks. As of March 18, 2020, chief medical officer, Matt Callaghan stated that in order to being manufacturing devices for the COVID-19 pandemic, they would need additional funds, lock in contracts and secure fast-trac regulatory approvals from the US FDA and other authorities.
