Bill New is the cofounder of Nellcor, which first developed and marketed pulse oximetry systems -- that thing a nurse puts on your finger to determine your blood oxygen levels. He holds a PhD in electrical and computer engineering from Stanford and earned his MD and was the chief resident in anesthesiology at Duke Medicine. His talk will focus on the challenges he faced when starting Nellcor and a subsequent business venture, Natus, that developed a device that determines if a baby barely 24 hours old can hear.
