LifeServe Innovations performs research and development of minimally invasive surgical devices, techniques and technologies for the advanced surgery and critical care patients.
At LifeServe Innovations our approach to innovation integrates academic research and clinical experience to develop technologies that improve the quality of medicine. Our translational research explores current medical challenges and links professional insight to design for innovative treatment based on real experience. We are combining research data from evolutionary morphology and ergonomic design to develop safe and effective techniques for a variety of surgical interventions.
Surgical Airway Formation and Oxygen Delivery
Our research into airway management has focused on improving the design of Percutaneous Tracheostomy products with a goal of reducing complications arising from poor design in order to improve the safety and effectiveness of this widely practiced minimally invasive technique. LifeServe Innovations currently holds several patents arising from this research and is undergoing pre-clincial testing of its first product for this procedure.
Percutaneous Tracheostomy Introducers
LifeServe Innovations is developing the next generation of Percutaneous Tracheostomy Introducer dilators to place a tracheotomy tube with greater ease and with fewer procedural complications than existing percutaneous tracheostomy systems. Our devices will meet the need for highly ergonomic modified-Seldinger technique that is feasible and empowering for intensivists and other non-specialists to perform this cost-effective bedside procedure with a low risk of iatrogenic complications, such as ring fracture and perforation of the posterior trachea. The novel low-profile geometry of this Introducer reduces friction and insertion forces during placement while conforming superiorly to the natural shape of the human trachea. LifeServe Innovations aims to elevate the standard of care for Percutaneous Tracheostomy patients and encourage broader adoption of this preferred airway technique worldwide.
This product is undergoing pre-clinical development.
