Inspiration Healthcare, a global supplier of medical technologies to the critical care and operating theatre sectors, was announced as the runner-up for the Outstanding Achievement Award at the annual Medilink UK National Awards in Coventry on Wednesday 20th April.

Nomination for the National Outstanding Achievement Award follows on from last year’s success at the Medilink East Midlands Awards, where Inspiration Healthcare was nominated for the Export Achievement, and won the Outstanding Achievement Award for gaining FDA Approval for its neonatal thermoregulation product, the Tecotherm Neo, opening up the key US market for export sales. 

Facing stiff opposition from companies based around the UK, members of the Inspiration Healthcare team were disappointed to not win the Outstanding Achievement Award on Wednesday evening at the Ricoh Arena, however they were pleased to see it given to such worthy winners: NutraHealth plc, a vitamin and pharmaceutical company based in the West Midlands.

“We were absolutely delighted to win the regional Outstanding Achievement award last year and to come so close to the national award, especially when the level of competition was so high.” said Inspiration Healthcare Group Sales Director Toby Foster: “This comes as recognition of the hard work and dedication of everyone at Inspiration Healthcare, and will certainly support our further endeavours as we venture in to new markets worldwide”.

NeuroproteXeon Inc. Announces Publication of Study to Lessen Cerebral Damage Following Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest using Xenon in JAMA

read this post reply

Rotherham, UK – 23rd March 2016

As an investor of NeuroproteXeon Inc, Inspiration Healthcare Group plc is pleased to report the publication of a Phase II clinical study of inhaled xenon and oxygen for neuroprotection in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients will appear in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

The study, undertaken at two University Hospitals in Finland, reported on a randomized, controlled trial of 110 successfully resuscitated, but still comatose, victims of OHCA. It compared the efficacy of the xenon/oxygen mixture combined with hypothermia with hypothermia alone over 24 hours. The primary outcome of the trial showed the xenon/oxygen group suffered significantly less white matter brain damage, assessed by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), than the group receiving hypothermia alone.

Mervyn Maze, MB, ChB, one of the inventors of the technology involved in the study and The William K. Hamilton Distinguished Professor of Anesthesiology at University of California San Francisco said: "Overall, the present prognosis for cardiac arrest patients is abysmal with less than 10% of patients surviving to discharge. However, the neuroprotective properties of xenon that were demonstrated in this Phase II trial are encouraging. The vast majority of deaths in cardiac arrest patients are due to neurologic damage."

“Inspiration Healthcare has long seen the need to protect the brain after a traumatic injury, in patients of all ages.’ said Neil Campbell, CEO of Inspiration Healthcare. He continued: “In accordance with our mission to provide innovative products to improve outcomes for patients, the findings of the study are very exciting to us and support our continuing work on the effects of xenon therapy in neonates.”

The authors of the trial concluded, "These preliminary findings require further evaluation in an adequately powered clinical trial designed to assess clinical outcomes associated with inhaled xenon among survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest." In light of these findings, NeuroproteXeon is seeking approval from the United States Food & Drug Administration to launch a pivotal Phase III OHCA clinical study to begin later in 2016.

About NeuroproteXeon

NeuroproteXeon Inc is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical/device company developing the proprietary use of inhaled xenon gas to protect against brain cell death following acute neurologic injury. For additional information, please visit www.neuroprotexeon.com.

Blood to Baby wins the Johnson’s® Award for Evidence into Practice at the RCM Annual Midwifery Awards

read this post reply

Rotherham, UK – 11th March 2016 

Inspiration Healthcare is pleased to announce that the Blood to Baby campaign was successful at the Royal College of Midwives Annual Midwifery Awards yesterday, winning the Johnson’s® Award for Evidence into Practice.

Blood to Baby was founded by Hannah Tizard, a student of BSc Midwifery at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and Vice Chair of the UCLan Midwifery Society.  The Blood to Baby campaign was set up to promote Optimal Cord Clamping and a change in clinical practice to promote its wider use in births globally. Optimal Cord Clamping allows the baby to benefit from a continued supply of oxygenated blood from the placenta after birth. Delaying the clamping of the umbilical cord can be of particular importance to neonates with medical issues at birth. What started with the hashtag #BloodtoBaby on social media to raise awareness of optimal cord clamping, the Blood to Baby campaign has now reached over 2 million people on Social Media and hundreds of nurses, midwifes, students and clinicians worldwide who ordered information packs from the official website.

Commenting on the award, Hannah said: “I'm really excited to see the campaign recognised by such a prestigious award from the Royal College of Midwives. Inspiration Healthcare is the perfect sponsor, aligned not only in our passion for Optimal Cord Clamping but also in finding new solutions to help facilitate change to practice. The health of our future generations depends on many things, one of those being babies born with full blood quota through Optimal Cord Clamping. We still have much more to do and I'm committed to being a part of that change.”

The Johnson’s Evidence into Practice Award celebrates the application of research evidence into midwifery practice and recognises an outstanding original project where creative thinking, sound research methodology, and effective teamwork have combined to achieve real service improvement.

The judges were looking for:

  • Clarity of the evidence on which the intervention is based
  • Identification of the ‘problem’/matter to be solved/improved
  • Process by which the project was developed and implemented
  • Discussion of impact on women and families
  • Clarity of evaluation process
  • Potential for generalisability of this approach

Inspiration Healthcare is proud to be the exclusive sponsor of Blood to Baby. Charndeep Khattar, Marketing Director for Inspiration Healthcare said: “We are delighted with how far the campaign has come, and Hannah deserves the highest praise for her work as a flagbearer for Optimal Cord Clamping. The Inspiration Healthcare team look forward to further collaboration towards even greater success in the future.”

Promotional posters, postcards, stickers and flyers to promote understanding and adoption of Optimal Cord Clamping practices can be requested from the Blood to Baby website www.bloodtobaby.com

New European Service Deal for Bio-Med Blenders

read this post reply

Leicester, UK – 10th November 2015

Inspiration Healthcare Ltd, a leading supplier of medical equipment, is pleased to announce a new European service agreement with Bio-Med Devices.

Under the terms of the agreement, Inspiration Healthcare will be the official and exclusive servicing partner of the Bio-Med Air/Oxygen Blenders for the whole of Europe. Prior to this, Bio-Med serviced all products in the USA which meant that any products requiring a service either had to be returned to the USA or a trained Bio-Med engineer had to travel to Europe.

The agreement provides a better service for all European customers of Bio-Med blenders including Inspiration Healthcare’s European distributors selling the blenders, and will increase sales and service opportunities for the company. The service agreement will see regional service centres in Germany and the Netherlands, with the option of opening a new service centre in the south of France. Having the agreement in place will allow more medical staff in hospitals to be trained quicker on how to use the blenders in intensive care units across Europe, thereby improving patient experiences.

Bio-Med Devices Inc. is a small but well established company based in the USA who design, manufacture and market a complete line of critical care and transportable respirators/ventilators such as air-oxygen blenders, ventilation monitors, disposable and reusable breathing circuits, and accessories. They have been honoured several times as one of Connecticut's 50 fastest growing technology companies and market their products domestically as well as to over 60 countries worldwide.

Malcolm Oxley, Inspiration Healthcare’s Business Unit Director said "This cements our relationship with Bio-Med and enables our expertise to be rolled out in the Blender market”. Ted Tabor the European Manager of Bio-Med Devices echoed Malcolm’s comments, saying “We have high confidence and trust in Inspiration healthcare with the servicing of our blenders.”
