Global Artificial Lung Devices Pipeline Insight and Competitive Landscape Report 2020 –

DUBLIN–()–The “Artificial Lung Devices Pipeline Insight and Competitive Landscape, 2020” drug pipelines has been added to’s offering.

The Artificial Lung Devices – Pipeline Insight and Competitive Landscape, 2020, report provides comprehensive insights about 20+ companies and 23+ pipeline devices in artificial lung devices pipeline landscape.

Globally, number of cases related to respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary collapse has grown rapidly. This has resulted in increasing demand for artificial lung that acts as an external support system providing oxygenation of blood and removal of carbon dioxide from the blood.

Researcher and scientists are also making persistent efforts in developing and improving artificial lung, with which it can be used at larger scale and with greater ease. Therefore, due to an increase in demand and more and more players investing in research and development activities there is an extensive pipeline of artificial lung devices.

This latest report has all the emerging artificial lung devices along with competitive landscape to help better understand the market scenario.

Artificial Lung Devices: Understanding

Artificial lung device is a prosthetic device works as an alternative to the biological lung. It provides oxygenation of blood and removal of carbon dioxide from the blood. Artificial lung devices are made of synthetic material that are connected to blood vessels through tubes and cannulas of silicone.

Who needs Artificial Lungs?

  • End-stage lung disease, namely chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) patients
  • Patients with severe pulmonary hypertension (PAH)
  • Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)

Artificial Lungs Devices Competitive Assessment

This segment of the artificial lung devices report encloses its detailed analysis of various pipeline devices which include product description, licensing and collaboration details and other developmental activities including latest news and press releases. The report also provides list of major players involved in the pipeline product development.

Product Type

Artificial lung devices for decades have been used in newborns and children with lung failure, pneumonia, meconium aspiration syndrome and other conditions. However, recently they have also been employed to be used in adults. Hence the segmentation of the report categories device products based on pediatric and adult.

Product Technology

Artificial lung devices can be used in two different ways – venovenous (VV) and venoarterial (VA), both the ways are covered in the report.

Major Players in Artificial Lung Devices

There are approx. 20+ key companies which are developing the products for artificial lung devices.

Hemolung RAS: ALung Technologies, Inc

Hemolung RAS provides ultra-low-flow, veno-venous extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal (ECCO2R) using a single, 15.5 French dual lumen catheter inserted percutaneously in the femoral or jugular vein. Low-flow ECCO2R with the Hemolung RAS provides partial lung support independently of the lungs. The Hemolung RAS removes 25% – 50% of basal metabolic CO2 production at circuit blood flows of 350-550 mL/min. The Hemolung RAS is designed to minimize the complication risks associated with extracorporeal gas exchange therapy.

OXY-1: Breethe, Inc

Breethe’s system, called the OXY-1 System, is designed to remove carbon dioxide and add oxygen to a patient’s blood, much like a working human lung would. The tech eliminates the need for bulky oxygen tanks, and allows patients in need of ECMO therapy to move around more easily. Breethe has filed for clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the OXY-1 System, but has not yet received it.

Biolung: MC3 Inc

Biolung is a device designed to fully support the respiratory needs of adult patients as abridge to lung transportation or lung recovery. The design decrease the overall device size and remove areas of blood flow stasis in the fiber bundle to improve gas exchange efficiency and minimize thrombus formation. Based on CFD analysis and bench-top pressure-flow and gas exchange performance, the device successfully decreased the fiber surface area 24%, while maintaining the oxygen transfer rates, and lowered the pressure drop by 10% to 40%.

Artificial Lung Devices: Competitive Benchmarking

This segment of the reports provides analysis of the pipeline report to give a clear understanding of the comparative analysis.

The analysis is based on

  • Brand Positioning of Leading companies
  • Application
  • Industry Collaborations

Artificial Lung Devices: Commercialization Activity

This segment of the report provides a detailed list of any commercial activity in the field of artificial lung devices ranging from collaboration, mergers and acquisition, recent breakthrough among others.

Development Activities

  • In April, 2015, Breethe, Inc. announced to obtained exclusive rights to University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) intellectual property (IP) for the development of a wearable, portable blood pump oxygenator that will function as an artificial lung system for patients suffering from respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary collapse

Artificial Lung Devices: Reimbursement

In 2018, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) implemented a series of coding categories and qualifiers for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) care, also known as artificial lungs. Among them, exclusion of veno-venous (VV) ECMO from DRG 003 heralds significant reimbursement reductions that may threaten fiscal viability of ECMO programs. This case series analysis evaluates merits and pitfalls of altering ECMO reimbursement.
