MUMBAI, India & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nanotronics Health, LLC, a healthcare technology company whose mission is to create and build urgently needed medical devices that are accessible, affordable, easy to use, and intelligently designed, today donated hundreds of nHale™ machines to hospitals in India at Mumbai Municipal Corporation, Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation, The Govt. of National Capital Territory of Delhi, St. Joseph Hospital Kandla, Lilasha Hospital Kandla and Municipal Corporation of Cochin. The US based company collaborated with Transworld, a global Shipping & Logistics Group, who will utilize top-notch resources to expedite distribution throughout India in response to Covid-19 pandemic.

nHale™ is a bi-level positive air pressure device that was granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to support respiratory therapy of spontaneously breathing adults weighing over 30kg suffering from COVID-19 disease. The machine is for use in hospitals, at-home, and in spaces converted for the care of large numbers of COVID-19 patients. nHale™ can be used with or without supplemental oxygen at the prescribing physician’s discretion.

“We want to provide people with the respiratory therapy that they need and free up beds for the most critical patients,” said Ramesh S. Ramakrishnan, Chairman of Transworld Group. “It is critical to quickly and reliably get nHale™ machines to patients either prior to intubated ventilation or moving off of an invasive ventilator.”

Nanotronics Health applied deep in-house expertise to build a machine that is easily manufactured at scale, as well as at reduced cost, to increase accessibility to those in need. The nHale™ device is designed for comfort and ease-of-use with the simplicity of one button.

“We are greatly appreciative of Transworld for partnering with us in this critical humanitarian effort,” said Julie Orlando, President of Nanotronics Health, LLC. “We urge other hospitals to please reach out to us so that we can help get the support that you need.”

National Institute of Health (NIH) COVID-19 treatment guidelines state that noninvasive positive pressure ventilation, such as the nHale™ Bi-Level PAP device, is recommended where high-flow nasal cannula oxygen is not available and endotracheal intubation is not indicated.
