“When people become critically ill, their entire world changes — they are fully reliant on healthcare professionals, drugs, and technology. They have no choice. That’s where we can make a real difference. By providing advanced therapies and support to the professionals who treat them in the most crucial moments of their lives, we can give them the solutions that no one else is offering.”

"What makes Ikaria different from other companies is that we put words into action. Our goal is to advance critical care, so we invest about a quarter of our revenues in R&D. We also invest in education to improve care, and to fund research, all in the hopes that the quality of clinical research in the future will be in good hands."

"Having a clear, well-articulated corporate vision is important, but the true value of a company lies in its ability to make a difference in the lives of patients. To stand side-by-side with a respiratory therapist in a NICU and see a baby who was previously struggling to get enough oxygen turn a healthy pink color—that makes me so very proud of what we do."
