Vyaire Medical is a relatively new company that has been around for more than 65 years. And while our name may be new, our products have been used in and around medical centers everywhere for decades. The story of Vyaire began in the 1950s on two different continents, due to the tireless efforts and dedication of two pioneering medical innovators. In the U.S., Forrest Bird invented and refined the mechanical ventilator. Nearly concurrently in Germany, Erich Jaeger developed what would become the first complete laboratory for pulmonary function testing and diagnostics.
