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.
