About The Baywin Closed Circuit Valve Innovators

Dr Harry Bayron

Harry Bayron, M.D.​

Harry Bayron, M.D. is a Pediatric Cardiologist and a Pediatrician. He completed a Pediatric Cardiology fellowship at the University of Miami and Pediatric Training at the University of Connecticut. He established the first ever Pediatric Cardiology practice in Palm Beach County, Florida and expanded the practice to three adjacent counties. Dr. Bayron is now retired, but continues his involvement in medicine as a consultant and a medical director. His passion for innovation began when he was a Pediatric Cardiology fellow. Dr. Bayron continues to innovate new devices for the advancement of medicine and improvement of medical care.

“We are going through a very difficult period in our history of our country and the world as this pandemic continues to afflict humanity.  Unfortunately, I believe that due to globalization and the fact that the world is getting more connected and “smaller”; epidemics and pandemics will continue to occur.  The BayWin Closed Circuit Valve will help to create an environment where cross infections of patients in the hospital might be minimized. 

Many health care providers live in fear of being infected by the patients they care for.  The BayWin Closed Circuit Valve is poised to minimized or totally eliminate that risk. We also believe that the management of patients with highly infectious conditions on ventilators will greatly benefit from therapy provided with a TRUE TOTALLY CLOSED ventilator circuit. This is the goal that we must master and we believe the BayWin Closed Circuit Valve will be a major player in this effort.”

He currently works at St Mary’s Hospital, West Palm Beach, FL where he utilizes his clinical skills in all areas of the hospital as well as for air and ground transport and hyperbaric medicine in a multi-place dive chamber. His passion for patient care and inventing comes from an injury when he was young – the reminder of the care and compassion he received then led him to design his first invention over 20 years ago a CPAP device to help patients in neonatal intensive care. Neil Winthrop is married to his best friend Kimberly and they have three sons Max, Jake and Philip.

Inspiration Story

Neil Winthrop has witnessed the consequences for both the patient and caregiver that result from having to regularly open the ventilator circuit.  His desire to protect patients from the risk of airborne infections, cross contamination, loss of PEEP and oxygenation – issues that can be catastrophic in these vulnerable patients – led him to design the Baywin Valve in collaboration with Harry Bayron.  Neil and Harry also wished to protect the caregiver from the risk of infection they run upon opening of the ventilator circuit.  Often, due to the high pressure within the circuit, secretions that have built up in the system are catapulted into the air upon opening and result in the spread of infection to the healthcare provider and contamination of the space around the patient.  Together, they designed the Baywin Valve to overcome these problems and to provide an improved device for better patient outcomes and a safer working environment.
