RESPICARDIA’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19

We extend our deepest gratitude to all the medical professionals working around the clock to protect the public and mitigate the global impact of COVID-19. We are inspired by the courage and resilience of so many in the healthcare industry. We, together with other medical device companies, are aligned in support of the front line healthcare workers and participating fully in the effort to conserve medical resources for the projected increase in demand across the system. At Respicardia, our priority is to stay focused on supporting the health and safety of our patients, our customers, and our employees.

Supporting Patients and Healthcare Professionals

Our support resources remain accessible and available to patients and medical professionals, and we remain committed to in-person support for the safe use of our products where necessary. We are actively working with our partner medical institutions to develop new models of support that minimize the risk of spreading the infection, for the safety of all involved. These efforts include leveraging technology for remote support and postponing elective procedures and clinic visits.

Supporting Employees

We have adopted our working arrangements to ensure personal safety and prudence in containing the spread of COVID-19. We have implemented remote and flexible work arrangements wherever possible and have restricted travel to support essential patient care only.

We actively monitor guidance from local and national health authorities and will adjust our response accordingly as the guidance changes. We again thank the healthcare professionals who are working to meet the needs of patients during this time and we are prepared to respond to this challenge in a way that supports our patients and partner medical institutions.

We wish you all health and safety in this challenging time, Respicardia Management Team

For Patients

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

The remedē® System is indicated for moderate to severe Central Sleep Apnea in adult patients.

Your doctor will need to evaluate your condition to determine if the remedē system is right for you. You will not be able to have an MRI or diathermy (special heat therapies) if you have the remedē system implanted. The remedē system may be used if you have another stimulation device such as a heart pacemaker or defibrillator; special testing will be needed to ensure the devices are not interacting.

As with any surgically implanted device, there are risks related to the surgical procedure itself which may include, but are not limited to, pain, swelling, and infection.

Once the therapy is turned on, some patients may experience discomfort from stimulation and/or from the presence of the device. The majority of these events are resolved either on their own or by adjusting the therapy settings. The remedē system may not work for everyone. There are additional risks associated with removing your system. If you and your doctor decide to remove the system, another surgery will be required.

Be sure to talk with your doctor so that you thoroughly understand all of the risks and benefits associated with the implantation of the remedē system. Rx only. For further information, please call +1-952-540-4470 or email info@respicardia.com.
