A Readily Accessible Device for Autotransfusions
When Carolyn Yarina, today's guest, walked into her university's Center for Entrepreneurship one day as an undergraduate, she was convinced that she would never become an entrepreneur herself. "I remember tapping my foot, being impatient," she recalls, laughing, "I couldn't wait to get out of there, thinking that entrepreneurship wasn't for me." Fast forward to a few years later, and she is now the co-founder and CEO of Sisu Global, a company that is committed to providing medical technology which enables healthcare for each person in their own community. In this episode, host Richard Miles sits down with Yarina to learn more about Sisu Global and more specifically, Hemafuse, the company's handheld, mechanical device for intraoperative autotransfusions, designed to replace or augment donor blood in emergency situations.
