Respiratory Motion Welcomes Former Siemens Health Services Executive as Head of Business Development
Date:12/15/2015

WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Respiratory Motion, Inc. – A technology industry veteran, Subrata Guha has joined medical device manufacturer Respiratory Motion, Inc. as its vice president of business development.

Guha, who most recently led the creation of the Office of the Ecosystems at Siemens Healthcare, brings more than 25 years of global industry experience to Respiratory Motion. He has worked with small, medium, and Fortune 500 companies serving healthcare, enterprise, service provider and industrial markets.

"I am proud to say that most of the companies I have worked with are leaders in their fields," said Guha. "That's what attracted me to Respiratory Motion, a company that is literally transforming the respiratory monitoring marketplace."

As vice president of the Office of the Ecosystems at Siemens Healthcare, he led the creation of an ecosystem group for Siemens Health Services. The group, which developed partnerships with complimentary companies, had a mission to provide comprehensive solutions and services for healthcare providers.

Earlier, Guha was vice president of sales for Sixnet, a global leader in industrial and commercial machine-to-machine networking solutions using integrated wireless, automation and connectivity technology. He was a key player in driving the company's double-digit annual growth, which led to its acquisition in 2011 by Red Lion Control, where he was responsible for global sales as executive vice president of sales.

Previously, Guha held executive level sales and business development positions at Avaya, ADC Telecom, Broadband Access Systems, Spider Software, Axon Networks, and Spider Systems.

"The global business development insight Subrata brings to Respiratory Motion will be critical as we pursue our plans for aggressive growth," said Dr. Jenny E. Freeman, founder and CEO of Respiratory Motion, Inc., which manufactures The ExSpiron™ Patient Monitor, a non-invasive, continuous minute ventilation monitor that provides data previously available only for intubated patients. "Subrata's extensive experience provides us with critical insights."

Guha joins the company at a time when a growing number of health care providers are looking for improved respiratory monitoring technology to replace unreliable systems. 

In the hospital, changes in breathing status often precede deterioration towards respiratory depression and cardiac arrest. Each year, cardiopulmonary arrests may reach 160,000 cases and lead to thousands of deaths.  Commonly, cardiopulmonary arrests are preceded by respiratory events.

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services' Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality finds the annual costs of respiratory insufficiency, arrest and failure was $7.8 billion in 2007, making respiratory issues one of the fastest drivers of hospital inpatient cost increases in the United States.

Minute ventilation is used to monitor the amount of air actually breathed by a patient. In 2012, Respiratory Motion won U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance for its revolutionary ExSpiron monitoring system, the first technology to provide continuous, non-invasive respiratory volumes in spontaneously breathing patients.
