Oxygen Delivery Patch

Following a traumatic brain injury, successful pre-hospital insertion of oxygen delivering endotracheal tubes decreases mortality rates and prevents secondary brain injury. However, successful tube insertion in the field by paramedics without the use of special drugs is very difficult outside of the hospital emergency room. Unsuccessful insertion can increase the chance of secondary brain damage and mortality because of a decrease in cerebral perfusion pressure. Technology Holding proposes to develop an oxygen delivery patch that can be administered without difficulty by first responders. The technology will allow first responders to save lives, decrease secondary brain injury, and improve outcomes. In addition, the technology will address other situations where the airway is impaired due to allergic reactions or injury to the airway.
