RESPeRATE for Blood Pressure
If you have high blood pressure (hypertension), your healthcare provider may recommend the use of RESPeRATE®. This product is not a medication, and you don't need a prescription to purchase it. Rather, it is a medical device that uses biofeedback to lower blood pressure. RESPeRATE allows you to pace your breathing in such a manner that it provides a sustained decrease in blood pressure when used for 15 minutes a day.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved RESPeRATE to be used along with other treatment for high blood pressure, such as medications or diet and exercise.
