Seattle Children's Invention Lands Major Funding with Hopes of Saving Thousands of Infant Lives Globally Each Year
Date:8/16/2011

e of the infant to high concentrations of oxygen, which carry the risk of tissue damage, infection, and inflammation - all of which are major factors in the development of chronic lung disease.  By reducing the work that an infant has to do to breathe, Sea-PAP will eliminate the need for tracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation in many infants.

“Removing the cost barriers of life saving respiratory support technology ensures more infants have a chance at a healthy life,” said Gary Darmstadt, Director of Family Health at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “We are excited for the completion of Sea-PAP, as we believe it will have a significant impact on reducing infant mortality rates worldwide.”

Commercialization Timeline and Continued Development Plans
Children's expects to complete development of Sea-PAP in 2012, and for commercial distribution to begin in 2013.

Ongoing development will be led by Dr. Hansen, Dr. Smith, and C. Peter Richardson, PhD, (co-inventor), who have been working together on various respiratory care initiatives since the 1980s.  Other collaborators on the project include: Robert M. DiBlasi, RRT-NPS, FAARC (co-inventor); Kathleen D. Bongiovanni, MIPH, MS; Christopher R. Howard, MBA; Jack Hildebrandt, PhD; and John Walton.

Sea-PAP can also work in conjunction with the Hansen Ventilator, a separate respiratory device prototype the Children's team is developing, named after Dr. Hansen.  If used together, even more premature infants with respiratory distress could be saved.

“Sea-PAP by itself is the quickest and cheapest way we can save thousands of infants with respiratory distress,” said Dr. Hansen.  "If used in conjunction with the Hansen Ventilator, that number could increase substantially.  We hop
