About Breathing Pacemakers

An Avery Breathing Pacemaker is a surgically implanted phrenic nerve,

or diaphragm, stimulator. It provides a far lower cost of care and a

much higher quality of life for ventilator dependent patients with

quadriplegia, central sleep apnea and diaphragm paralysis.

Avery Breathing Pacemakers are the only diaphragm pacing system to

have full premarket approval by the US FDA for adult and pediatric

use. By using implanted radiofrequency receivers and external

antennas, Avery Breathing Pacemakers do not have percutaneous

connectors which can result in chronic infections and ongoing wound

management issues for caregivers.
