David Giarracco has extensive experience in the launch and global commercialization of novel patient-monitoring technologies in both hospital and home care settings. In leadership roles at Medtronic and Covidien, he successfully scaled organizations to exceed business plans by strategically developing markets, addressing commercial structure, and creating clinically focused solution-selling organizations. Giarracco combines this expertise with start-up experience as COO at SeaStar Medical and as a lead investor and board member at early-stage healthcare technology companies.
“Dave will play an essential role in helping refine our strategy and drive product development activity to realize our mission of better detecting and monitoring sepsis,” said Dr. Donald Prough, Rebecca Terry White Distinguished Professor and Chairman of the Department of Anesthesia at the University of Texas Medical Branch. “As a Noninvasix founder and practicing anesthesiologist, I am excited about our future and the opportunity to make a significant impact on this major healthcare challenge.”
“Prevention and control strategies for sepsis infections are urgently needed,” said David Giarracco. “We need new, non-invasive approaches for early diagnosis to reduce complications and save lives. Noninvasix technology promises to make a major difference in patient care, reduce healthcare costs and have wider applications beyond sepsis.”
Giarracco received his Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University and his Master of Arts in Biomedical Engineering from The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He brings more than 25 years of medical technology experience as an engineer, commercial leader, and early-stage investor in innovative, category-defining technologies.
Noninvasix will be the first company to non-invasively monitor the severity of sepsis and septic shock, enabling clinicians to diagnose and monitor the response to treatment of tissue hypoxia in real-time. Its patented optoacoustic platform technology is the first solution to non-invasively and continuously measure central venous saturation. Incorporating Noninvasix into the ICU workflow allows clinicians to more quickly and accurately diagnose their critically ill patients and tailor treatments to improve outcomes. Future developments, enhancements, and evidence will expand the use and clinical impact of the technology into other indications and settings.
