Awair is a medical device company whose mission is to develop patient-centric airway products for the intensive care unit (ICU). Our goal is to improve patient care by creating disruptive products that reduce complications and costs of ICU care. Our first product is the Wyshbone drug delivery catheter. Wyshbone is the first catheter capable of continuous delivery of local anesthetic to numb key points in the airway to alleviate discomfort from the breathing tube (endotracheal (ET) tube) in the throat of ventilated patients.
