Linshom Medical, Inc. Closes $1.5 million Series A Round with Investment from Maryland Momentum Fund and Current Investors

Linshom is First to Deliver an Operating-Room-Quality Respiratory Profile to Patient Bedside for Continuous, Predictive Respiratory Monitoring (CPRM)

Baltimore, Md. (April 27, 2022) – Linshom (“to breathe”), a Maryland-based startup developing a respiratory monitoring system, closed a $1.5 million Series A funding round with investment from the Maryland Momentum Fund and current investors.

The Linshom Respiratory Sensor and Monitor is the first predictive, continuous respiratory monitoring system able to practically reach the patients’ bedside. Severe respiratory events can begin to cause brain damage only three minutes after breathing ceases. While critical care patients are continuously monitored for respiratory function, patients on general care floors are not monitored as closely, but are still at risk for serious respiratory complications. The Linshom Respiratory System bridges that gap, helping clinicians respond more quickly to severe respiratory-related events.

The Real Estate Problem Holding Back NYC's Life Sciences Industry

Life sciences in New York City is poised for growth, but industry leaders said that will only be assured if developers build enough spaces for startups of all sizes.
