New Tucson company aims to put life-saving devices in neighborhoods

CardioSpark is a way to “make neighborhoods cardiac safe,” said one of the company’s founders, Tucson cardiologist and mechanical engineer Carter Newton, who is working with many others including co-founder Nick Soloway, a Tucson attorney and entrepreneur.

They are teaming with Dr. Marvin Slepian, of the Arizona Center for Accelerated Biomedical Innovation, and Dr. Karl Kern, a cardiologist and professor at the University of Arizona and chair of the Sarver Heart Center Resuscitation Research Group.
