Freespira utilizes a highly precise, proprietary sensor that samples and measures the CO2 levels and breathing (respiratory) rate in your exhaled breath and digitally transmits this data to an App running on a tablet. You wear a small nasal cannula that is attached to the sensor for measuring your exhaled air. The only purpose of the nasal cannula is for measuring your exhaled breaths; no gas is delivered. Real-time breathing information is displayed on the tablet and the App provides verbal and visual prompts, guiding you to adjust your breathing pattern to optimize your CO2 level and respiration rate. This trains your body to maintain healthy exhaled CO2 levels while stabilizing your respiration rate. All of the above components of the Freespira System are part of the Freespira Program.
After we determine that the Freespira Program is a treatment option for you, one of our clinic staff members will train you. Then you will take the System home for four weeks and do two 17-minute guided breathing sessions per day, once in the morning and once in the evening.
All of your breathing sessions will be automatically uploaded to a secure server. Your clinic staff member and our Freespira partner will review the results to assess progress and provide feedback to you, when needed. After treatment is completed in four weeks, you return the System to our office.
