The Avery Diaphragm Pacing System

FDA Approved since 1987 for all ages

… is a phrenic nerve stimulator, also called a breathing pacemaker. It consists of surgically implanted receivers and electrodes with an external transmitter and antennas. Phrenic pacing provides ventilatory support for patients with chronic respiratory insufficiency whose diaphragm, lungs and phrenic nerves have residual function.

Improves

Quality of life

Pacing is preferable to mechanical ventilation because it allows for normal breathing and speech patterns; eases eating and drinking; is small and operates silently; all of which improves the ability to actively participate in social and educational activities.

Saves $20K/Yr*

Over mechanical ventilation

A diaphragm pacing system generally costs less than $1,000 per year, and on average will pay for itself in 2 years, saving over $20,000 a year thereafter*.

Reduces Risk

Of pneumonia & infections

Upper airway infections are less common due to the reduction in suctioning and elimination of external humidifier/ventilator circuits and tracheostomy tubes.
