For this reason, LifeAire is the chosen solution by the world’s leading healthcare institutions and medical centers, including: Stanford University, Northwestern, University of California San Francisco (UCSF), University of Connecticut, Mayo Clinic, University of Massachusetts, Wake Forest University, Yale University, St. Luke’s University Health Network, and other leading healthcare providers.
