Breath Hold ES for IR

The Breath Hold ES is a motion management/ biofeedback device helping patients breathe in a consistent manner or breath hold at a particular point time. It allow for these breathing patterns or breath holds to be reproducible in a variety of procedures.

Interventional Radiology

Biopsies of the lungs, chest, heart, liver, kidneys and spleen are all affected by respiratory motion and may benefit from consistent, controlled patient breathing. The Breath Hold ES provides a highly effective and affordable solution to a longstanding problem. Additionally, the device supports optimization of respiration to help enable access to difficult to reach lesions, such as those blocked when patients breathe normally.

Streamline Tumor Localizations and Ablations 

Similarly, when placing localizing needles or ablating diseased tissue, Breath Hold can help patients control the respiratory motion that make these procedures so challenging.
