OneBreath is a new business addressing one of the most difficult problems in critical care medicine: Delivering high precision, highreliability mechanical ventilation at an affordable cost.

COVID-19 Impact

Government planners have described a need for many thousands of additional ventilators in the event of a pandemic influenza or other large-scale medical emergency. Severe influenza often leads to respiratory distress which cannot be dealt with in the absence of mechanical ventilation. Since ventilators typically see less than 10% down-time in the US, there is little excess capacity to meet scaled up demand during an emergency. With a typical sales price greater than $15,000 for a new critical care ventilator, it is cost-prohibitive to stockpile a sufficient quantity of these devices. Furthermore, most ventilators in use today are ill-equipped for use in a mass casualty event or stockpiling, where electricity and oxygen may not be accessible, portability and durability are critical, and skilled users may be in short supply. OneBreath was founded by a group of physicians and engineers at Stanford University with the goal of developing a class-leading ventilator for rural critical care at an affordable price. The architecture of the OneBreath device is ideally suited to become the gold standard ventilator for emergency stockpiling. OneBreath is currently refining the design to ready it for Validation & Verification and FDA approval. Using the NASA Technology Readiness Level (TRL) system, OneBreath’s ventilator is currently at TRL 5.
