Diagram Pacing Therapy gets FDA Authorization

Lungpacer Medical, based in Vancouver, Canada, announced that its Diaphragm Pacing Therapy (DPT) System received FDA Emergency Use Authorization for use in weaning COVID-19 patients off of ventilators.

Patients on prolonged mechanical ventilation may experience diaphragm disuse atrophy and ventilator-induced diaphragmatic dysfunction (VIDD), which makes it harder for patients to breathe on their own and increases the amount of time required on ventilation. The Lungpacer DPT System is designed to prevent or reverse VIDD.
