IRRAS Announces US Launch of Hummingbird Products for Neurocritical Care

Stockholm, December 16, 2019 – IRRAS, a global healthcare company with a comprehensive portfolio of innovative products for neurocritical care, today announced the launch of its Hummingbird® ICP Monitoring product family in the United States.

These products, which were acquired by IRRAS in May 2019, include proprietary single and multi-lumen cranial access bolts, parenchymal intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring, and a cranial access kit. The Hummingbird family of products helps clinicians diagnose and manage patients’ intracranial pressure after traumatic brain injury, a subarachnoid hemorrhage, and/or a stroke. The Hummingbird ICP Monitoring product line is designed for accuracy, reliability, and ease of use to address the needs of both the hospital and the patient.

 “The launch of the Hummingbird product line deepens our continued commitment to deliver innovative technologies and improved medical treatments for neurocritical care. It is known that elevated intracranial pressure during traumatic brain events can cause major complications and even death,” said Kleanthis G. Xanthopoulos, Ph.D., President & CEO. “Our Hummingbird line of products significantly improves a physician’s ability to manage intracranial pressure, leading to better overall treatment outcomes.”

“Multimodal monitoring brings a lot of value and options when treating patients with traumatic brain injury,“ said Dr. Andrew Carlson, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of New Mexico. “The Hummingbird system’s ability to drain fluid, measure pressure and provide additional lumens all from one bolt, gives us a unique and simplified approach to guide our management of the most critical patients in the neuro intensive care unit.”

“As we add the Hummingbird ICP Monitoring product family to our lead commercial product, IRRAflow®, IRRAS will now offer the most advanced portfolio of products for the neuro intensive care unit,” said Will Martin, Chief Commercial Officer of IRRAS. “From the diagnosis of traumatic brain injury to needed drainage that removes blood and reduces excess pressure, Hummingbird and IRRAflow bring needed innovation to the entire spectrum of neurocritical care.”

Physicians or hospitals in the United States who are interested in learning more about IRRAS or the Hummingbird ICP Monitoring products should contact your local IRRAS sales professional or for additional information.  IRRAS’ team of direct sales professionals is available to provide support, training, and certification for the company’s entire product family, including Hummingbird and IRRAflow.
