TEL AVIV, Israel, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — 2breathe Technologies Ltd. with its wholly owned U.S. subsidiary Resperate Inc. announced, today, the publication of a new peer reviewed original article with the results from a 96 heart failure patients study. The independent study used the company’s FDA-cleared hypertension treatment device, RESPeRATE. The study demonstrated that using RESPerATE during 12-weeks in the home setting can improve exercise capacity, left ventricular function, accompanied by a reduction in end-diastolic diameter of the left ventricle and attenuation of sleep disturbances, mainly central apnea.
The study was led by Professor Kalina Kawecka-Jaszcz, from the Department of Cardiology at the Jagiellonian University Medical College, Kraków, Poland in collaboration with Gianfranco Parati, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Univeristy of Milano-Bicocca and Head of Cardiology Department, S.Luca Hospital, Istituto Auxologico Italiano, Milan, Italy.
“Chronic heart failure has become one of the most widespread diseases and a principal cause of morbidity and mortality in aging societies, due to the high prevalence of its main causes, namely, hypertension and coronary heart disease,” said Professor Parati, a world-leading cardiologist and expert in the arena of telemedicine and digital therapeutics. “These new study results are consistent with two earlier randomized controlled studies supporting the benefits of RESPeRATE as a novel component of cardiorespiratory rehabilitation programs in patients with CHF.”
I Lowered My Blood Pressure Naturally. Now it’s 120/80
CHF affects about 5.7 million patients in the U.S alone and is the most widespread cause of hospitalization of patients over 65, with more than one million hospitalizations every year and total treatment costs amounting to $33 billion annually. About 91% of CHF sufferers have a medical history involving hypertension.
“The results of these independent studies on heart failure patients and sleep disordered breathing in particular, expand the growing body of scientific evidence that the benefits of RESPeRATE extend beyond hypertension,” said Erez Gavish, co-founder/CEO of 2breathe technologies. “As a digital therapeutic device, RESPeRATE goes beyond patient monitoring to encourage compliance and offer a powerful non-drug therapeutic option that improves patient lives. It’s a very exciting future.”
RESPeRATE is the only non-drug, FDA-Cleared device for lowering blood pressure naturally. It is clinically proven, doctor recommended and has no side effects.
RESPeRATE lowers blood pressure by relaxing constricted blood vessels which cause high blood pressure. RESPeRATE does so by harnessing the therapeutic power of slow paced breathing with prolonged exhalation in a way that is virtually impossible to achieve on your own. All you have to do is breathe along with RESPeRATE’s guiding tones.
