Breath Hold ES™ System.

Effective and Convenient Respiratory Motion Control for
Radiation Therapy Procedures

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.

Highly effective, easy and convenient, Breath Hold ES™ delivers new precision for radiation therapy procedures involving the lungs and upper abdomen, where respiratory motion is an ongoing problem. Breath Hold ES™ combines an expandable bellows system, pressure-sensitive transducer tube that wraps around the patient’s chest, and an LED display. During both planning and treatment, the device visualizes the respiratory cycle as a pattern of lights. This feedback effectively guides the patient towards a consistent pre-selected breath-hold position or a reproducible, shallow respiratory pattern.

The Breath Hold ES. can be used in the following applications
• Radiation Therapy
• Left Breast Treatment (spare the heart)
• Imaging during Radiation Therapy Planning using CT or MR
(Managing Motion during Imaging)
• Interventional Radiolog (Biopsy of the lung)
• MRI Cardiac Imaging
• Lithotripsy (Treatment of kidney stones with sound waves)

Make Respiratory Motion Control a Reality for Your Radiation Therapy Program Today

• Supports consistent breathing for imaging for therapy planning.

• Supports consistent breath-holds for RT delivery.

• Accelerates treatment time compared to gating.

• Greater comfort than compression devices.

• Easy patient set-up.

Integrate Respiratory Control into Your Program Today
If your facility relies on free breathing for challenging RT procedures, Medspira Breath Hold ES™ provides an important new option, making it easier than ever before to integrate respiratory control into your RT program.  The device is simple to use and affordable - many patients report feeling empowered through their active involvement in breathing control and the therapy process.  Lightweight and portable, Breath Hold ES™ can be shared among therapy suites.  Technologists learn to use the device in a matter of minutes.

Benefits Over Gating and Compression
If your facility currently uses gating technologies to compensate for breathing motion, Breath Hold ES™ may significantly accelerate procedure time - benefitting both workflow and patient care - while supporting a highly consistent and predictable breathing pattern for most patients.  Additionally, compared to respiratory compression devices, Breath Hold ES™ provides a high degree of patient comfort and reliability.

Enhanced Precision for Left Side Breast Cancer Therapy
Numerous studies have shown that during radiation therapy for left side breast cancer, reproducible breath-hold techniques support consistent positioning of the tumor to minimize radiation dose to the heart.  With Breath Hold ES™, every radiation therapy site can help provide these patients with the carefully targeted treatment they need.

Innovative Biofeedback-Based Control
For radiation therapy involving the chest and upper abdomen, including the lungs and left breast.
• Restricts tumor mobility and potentially minimizes treatment margins through consistent breath-holds or controlled shallow breathing.

• Relies on biofeedback for proactive patient breathing control

• Greater patient comfort than other motion control technologies

• Portable, standalone system, with easy patient set-up

• Compatible with any LINAC and CT system

• Simple and intuitive operation

• Developed by physicians at the Mayo Clinic

• Affordable pricing

Keeping Technicians Informed in Real Time
A remote Breath Hold ES™ display that operates through protective bunkers enables technicians in the control room to follow the patient’s breathing motion in real time.
