5 billion people around the world lack access to safe, affordable surgical and anesthesia care1. We are trying to change that by searching for the next generation of inhaled anesthetics.
A major reason so many people lack access to surgery is that current anesthesia drugs require expensive personnel and massive infrastructure to administer. With myriad side effects such as cardiovascular depression, hypotension, respiratory depression, post-operative nausea and vomiting, and more, today's anesthetics are far from ideal.
New anesthetics without the side effects of today's drugs could expand access to surgery by making it faster and less expensive to train new anesthetists and might even enable them to take care of more patients. Expanesthetics is using screening technology based on groundbreaking science to search quickly and efficiently for new inhaled anesthetics that lack the unwanted side effects of today's drugs. If we are successful, we might not only transform the multibillion-dollar global market for anesthetics, we may even bring surgical and anesthesia care within reach for billions around the world.
