Smart solutions for human "puddles"
Innovative technology to detect and drain fluids from around the lungs in an easy, fast and safe way
Fluids accumulation around the lungs (pleural effusion) is a common complication of many medical conditions including heart failure, infections and cancer.
Based on our experience and research, in up to 70 % of the cases, doctors drain pleural effusion "blindly" without an ultrasound due to shortage of ultrasound-skilled staff, ultrasound machines and the increasing number of patients.
In many cases, patients need to wait more than 4 hours and even days to get the drainage done under ultrasound guidance.
Draining pleural effusion blindly can lead to serious complications such a collapsed lung (pneumothorax), which can be life threatening.
