THE FUTURE OF NON-INVASIVE RESPIRATORY MONITORING
No tubes. No wires.
Non-invasively monitors patient’s breathing, gives reliable alerts for deteriorating volumes, apnea and obstructive breathing
Monitors breathing at a fraction of the cost of existing monitoring technologies by utilizing off-the-shelf hardware.
Intuitive & Simple
Straight-forward to use and interpret by all medical staff. Output consists of standard respiratory parameters.
BreatheVision was founded in 2013 on the need to develop a simple method for early detection of breathing deterioration in patients under conscious sedation... The founders built on their expertise in machine vision and missile navigation algorithms to invent a way to quantify breathing through analyzing chest micro-movements based on low-cost off the shelf hardware.
To improve patient safety by monitoring essential breathing parameters through machine learning technology and providing immediate warning.
Our first product, the SafeSed monitoring system, was developed for medical staff to continuously monitor respiration during sedation procedures, such as colonoscopy.

PROSPECTIVE TARGET MARKETS
Adverse events associated with sedation
“Drug-induced respiratory depression is the primary cause of morbidity associated with sedation and analgesia”
American Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates 2016
Continuous respiratory monitoring
"…hospitals are expected to address monitoring for …respiratory
depression related to opioids for post-operative patients…. monitoring of ventilation may warrant … to assess breathing"

SafeSed- No Tubes, No Wires
BreatheVision performs clinical validation of the SafeSed monitoring system at Meir Medical Center (Kfar Saba, Israel). The clinical trial will evaluate safety and performance of the SafeSed system for monitoring patients undergoing elective gastrointestinal endoscopy.
The SafeSed system will be compared with conventional methods of respiratory monitoring - capnography and pulse oximetry.
Patient enrollment to the trial will start in November 2016.
SafeSed signal vs. capnograph signal
1st clinical trial for SafeSed in the Gastro clinic began recruiting at Meir Medical Centre, Israel.
1st US Patent granted for the SafeSed system.
Successful FDA Pre-Submission meeting for the SafeSed device
Clinical Validation Trial for Volume determination by SafeSed began recruiting at Meir Medical Centre, Israel.
