From Plastic Surgeon-in-Training to Inventor: How a Family Tragedy Led One Latina to Improve Lung Disease Diagnosis for the World

Respira Labs is a successful startup that provides low-cost diagnostics for respiratory diseases such as COPD, asthma, COVID-19, and others. Dr. Maria Artunduaga, CEO and founder, seeks to help people living with such health issues by means of a wearable device and software that monitor lung function via acoustic technology. Her goal is to give patients an accurate tool to monitor their own health in a non-invasive, easy and consistent way, with a device similar to the one used for other non-respiratory conditions.
With a team of hardware engineers in the U.S. and software developers in Colombia, Respira Labs is testing its technology and completing procedures for the FDA approval.
