The Jewess Patriot: Inspira from Israel Solves Respiratory Care
In my latest in a series of Jewess Patriot interviews with Israel’s leading young, innovative and internationally respected technology executives, we meet someone who can change how physicians rethink the idea of induced comas.
Medical technology advances from Israel are unique and groundbreaking and as a proud Zionist, I am proud and honored to share a new medical breakthrough that is helping patients from all backgrounds internationally, because as I always say, “You don’t have to be Jewish with Cindy.”
I recently sat and spoke with Joe Hayon.
Hayon is a young and energetic Israeli and his leadership has been recognized by world business and medical executives and media.
Joe Hayon is the President and Co-Founder of Inspira Technologies and in our conversation I learned how patients with respiratory problems have an alternative that boosts oxygen levels immediately, reducing the need to induce comas and place them on ventilators. The company was incorporated in 2018 with a clear and original mission within respiratory care.
During the pandemic, the word ventilators was referred to and often misused. Headline news made them political, and family members suffered from fear. Imagine if the public had the knowledge of Inspira.
As someone who is not medically savvy, the workings of the device make sense to me. The INSPIRA ART system acts as an “artificial lung” to rebalance patients’ oxygen saturation levels in minutes. By inserting oxygen into the blood and removing CO2 from the blood, the INSPIRA ART system has the potential to minimize the need for mechanical ventilation.
- Designed to be affordable, easy-to-use and require less specialized personnel to reduce operational costs
- Potentially avoids long-term effects of induced coma
- Designed to reduce complications associated with mechanical ventilation
- Potentially eliminates risks of lengthy weaning process from mechanical ventilation
- Intended to expand acute respiratory treatment beyond the ICU
- Aims to reduce length of hospital stays and costs

Last December, Inspira Technologies announced that it has signed an exclusive original equipment manufacturing (OEM) agreement with Terumo Cardiovascular, a division of the global Terumo Corporation. Terumo Cardiovascular has expertise in the field of oxygenation systems, heart-lung machines, and monitoring systems. Hayon stated that, “This is a very important agreement for the company, and we believe that it is in line with our strategy towards developing collaborations with the largest medical device companies to join in on our journey to market.”
