Dr. Jeffrey H. Lawson

The addition of a seasoned medical, surgical, and device expert like Dr. Lawson will enhance our ability to support physicians whose patients require hemorrhage control and resuscitation.

Prytime Medical Inc – The REBOA Company™, the leading innovator and global provider of life-saving REBOA products for non-compressible truncal hemorrhage (NCTH), today announced the hiring of Chief Medical Officer, Jeffrey H. Lawson, MD, Ph.D.

“The new technology Prytime Medical recently developed was designed specifically to aid in the resuscitation and management of non-compressible hemorrhages,” said Dr. Jeff Lawson. “This major breakthrough has the potential to dramatically improve patient outcomes. I believe these products, along with the company’s new patient-first approach, will greatly facilitate the adoption of minimally invasive techniques in trauma and shock resuscitation. Lawson added, “As other surgical specialties have evolved over the past 20 to 30 years, this technology will allow an endovascular approach like partial REBOA to change the way patients with NCTH are treated.”

“Prytime Medical has fundamentally changed its overall strategy,” said CEO David Spencer. “Based on significant feedback from the medical community, we have launched a new catheter design called pREBOA-PROTM. This design has an easy to use manual “dimmer” capability, designed specifically for real partial REBOA, to break the previous 30 minute barrier to using REBOA. Additionally, we have implemented a new, industry-leading approach to providing fanatical clinical and program support to better help our physicians and their patients achieve successful outcomes. The addition of a seasoned medical, surgical, and device expert like Dr. Lawson will enhance our ability to support physicians whose patients require hemorrhage control and resuscitation.
