The US-manufactured, cost-effective nHale™, can be used with or without supplemental oxygen in-hospital, at-home, and in field hospitals
Nanotronics Health, LLC, a US based healthcare technology company whose mission is to create and build urgently needed medical devices that are accessible, affordable, easy to use, and intelligently designed, has donated hundreds of nHale™ machines to hospitals in India at Mumbai Municipal Corporation, Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation, The Govt. of National Capital Territory of Delhi, St. Joseph Hospital Kandla, Lilasha Hospital Kandla and Municipal Corporation of Cochin.
The US based company collaborated with Transworld, a global Shipping & Logistics Group with a strong presence in the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and the Gulf Region, who will utilize top-notch resources to expedite distribution throughout India in response to Covid-19 pandemic.
nHale™ is a bi-level positive air pressure device that was granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to support respiratory therapy of spontaneously breathing adults weighing over 30kg suffering from COVID-19 disease.
The machine is for use in hospitals, at-home, and in spaces converted for the care of large numbers of COVID-19 patients. nHale™ can be used with or without supplemental oxygen at the prescribing physician’s discretion.
“We want to provide people with the respiratory therapy that they need and free up beds for the most critical patients,” said Ramesh S. Ramakrishnan, Chairman of Transworld Group. “It is critical to quickly and reliably get nHale™ machines to patients either prior to intubated ventilation or moving off of an invasive ventilator.”
