The late Dr Zamir Hayek was the inventor of the Hayek RTX series of ventilators and the leading pioneer in the field of cuirass ventilation.
Dr. Hayek was a world-renowned physician in the field of respiratory care and paediatrics and is the inventor of the well-known Hayek Oscillator as well as numerous other patents.
Hayek Medical was setup to develop and market a ventilator that would come as close as possible to the ‘ideal’ mechanical ventilator. Dr Hayek’s vision was to create a device that would provide complete ventilation, be non-invasive, work physiologically, be simple to use and that would overcome many of the problems associated with existing ventilation techniques, and provide a better quality of life for ventilator dependent patients.
Through patents and using his revolutionary ventilatory concept (BCV) the Hayek RTX series of respirators were developed, meeting the requirements of his ‘dream machine’. There have been over 100 publications to date on his method (including in The Lancet, Chest, Thorax, Circulation, Heart and Anaesthesia – See Publications)
