Company description

NeVap is a medical device startup company aimed to reduce cases of ventilator-associated pneumonia, which is the most endemic and costly ICU infection in modern medicine.

Its first product, the NeVap Aspire Subglottic Suction Endotracheal Tube (ASSET), removes the fluids that carry bacteria and viruses before they have a chance to enter a patient’s lungs. Its multi-port design allows for the device to use high vacuum settings continuously without the risk of causing damage to the patient’s airway due to vacuum pressure. This design has allowed the device to be used in additional settings such as the operating room and emergency department.
