BiO2 Medical Inc.

Prophylactic pulmonary embolism protection

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Hospitalized patients are at the greatest risk for a fatal pulmonary embolism within the first 10 days after admission, but traditional inferior vena cava filters to prevent PEs if anticoagulant therapy is contraindicated and/or ineffective are not typically placed in a patient until approximately one week into their hospital stay. BiO2 Medical Inc. is looking to address this treatment gap with its Angel Catheter, a device that incorporates the PE protection of a retrievable, self-expanding nitinol IVC filter attached to a triple-lumen, central venous access catheter.
