During the ESICM congress, ALung will showcase the Hemolung RAS, a new extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal (ECCO2R)
system that provides a dialysis-like alternative or supplement to
mechanical ventilation, allowing a patient’s lungs to rest and heal in
cases of acute respiratory failure.
Since receiving CE Mark approval earlier this year, ALung has worked
to round out its European team, making several key hires. ALung has
established direct commercial operations in Germany, France, and the
United Kingdom, and is entering additional markets in conjunction with
ALung’s European leadership team includes:
- Jean-Michel Dutois, General Manager France, brings significant business development experience, having previously served as Country Manager France for Datascope Corporation;
- François Le Lan, Director EMEA Distribution, comes to ALung from Nonin Medical Inc. where he managed sales for western Europe. Based in France, Mr. Le Lan has over 20 years of medical device sales experience, primarily in ventilation;

“I am excited to have such a talented and experienced group of
professionals join the ALung team,” said Peter DeComo, Chairman and CEO
of ALung. “Our new European managers are already hard at work executing
our Hemolung Reference Center Program with clinicians across Europe. We
are striving to make this technology the standard of care for treating
patients with acute respiratory failure.”
