PASADENA, Calif., May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Rapid Oxygen has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 North America award, one of the technology industry's most prestigious prizes.
Finalists for the awards are among the continent's brightest and most innovative private ventures. Their place among North America's tech elite has been chosen by Red Herring's editorial team, during a months-long process that takes into account criteria including disruptive impact, proof of concept, financial performance, market footprint and quality of management.
For over two decades Red Herring's team has seen through the tech sector's hype to select brands that have become industry benchmarks. Previous Top 100 finalists have included Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube.
The Top 100 North America has become not only a springboard for some of tech's biggest names, but a valued and trusted tool for venture capitalists, experts and analysts predicting trends at the industry's sharpest edge.
"Selecting finalists for this year's Top 100 has proved more difficult than ever," said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. "North America has been tech's beating heart for years–but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2019.
"Rapid Oxygen fully deserves its place among our finalists, and I've every confidence it will make a significant impact in the tech world," added Vieux.
Rapid Oxygen's new emergency Oxygen technology is now available to provide Oxygen to the more than 7 million breathing emergencies that occur every year. Rapid Oxygen's new groundbreaking portable R15 emergency Oxygen system is a non-explosive Oxygen device developed in conjunction with the University of Michigan for home safety, drug overdoses and other emergencies. The patented R15 bridges the gap between a life-threatening event and the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS), providing 100% Oxygen during the first critical minutes of any emergency. The R15 Oxygen delivery system can be placed beside first aid kits, fire-extinguishers, or automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and safely used by anyone without training.
"Oxygen is an effective first aid response to prevent more serious medical conditions during an emergency and can help a victim survive until EMS arrive on scene," explained inventor and founder of the Rapid Oxygen Company, Dr. Richard Imbruce.
