EAGAN, Minn.April 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — ABM Respiratory Care, a medical technology company focused on developing and globally commercializing novel airway clearance and ventilation solutions, is excited to announce the expanded indication granted to the BiWaze® Clear System. The oscillating lung expansion (OLE) therapy of BiWaze Clear is intended to remove airway obstructions caused by retained secretions in the lower airways, as well as re-expand collapsed areas of the lungs, prevent respiratory tract infections, and enhance gas exchange and oxygenation. BiWaze Clear has now received FDA 510k clearance for use in-line with a ventilator in acute care environments.

This milestone presents acute care facilities with an innovative therapeutic option for ventilated patients suffering from atelectasis, retained secretions, or pneumonia. The inclusion of OLE therapy in-line with ventilators has demonstrated remarkable outcomes, including a 64% decrease in ventilator time and a 47% reduction in post-operative pulmonary complications among intubated patients.1

“This pivotal indication will greatly benefit our customers and patients,” said Greg Miller, CEO at ABM Respiratory Care. “The expanded use of BiWaze Clear with ventilators underscores our commitment to continuously enhance patient care and highlights the versatility of our BiWaze platform.”

BiWaze Clear initially received FDA 510k clearance in December 2022 for use with a face mask, mouthpiece, or trach adapter in acute and home care settings. This expanded indication further emphasizes ABM Respiratory Care’s dedication to improving patient outcomes and advancing respiratory care.
