World-renowned, award-winning professors invented Breezing metabolic technology. Mayo Clinic fellow, Dr. Forzani, led a team that designed Breezing devices for academic, sports performance, and clinical applications. Independent 3rd parties validated Breezing against the Gold Standards and FDA cleared metabolic carts. Mayo Clinic, Harvard Medical School, Northwestern University Sports Program, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and many others worldwide are utilizing Breezing products.

Breezing’s breakthrough sensor technology accurately determines Resting Energy Expenditure (REE), i.e. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR), and Respiratory Exchange Ratio (RER, i.e. respiratory quotient at resting condition) through indirect calorimetry using a single stamp-sized sensor cartridge to precisely measure both oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Breezing’s FDA cleared cleaning/disinfection protocol ensures safe use.
Importance of Precise REE/RMR Measurement: National Institutes of Health (NIH) Nutrition for Precision Nutrition, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and American College of Sports Medicine have recommended that personalized treatment of weight managementto improve weight loss outcomes includes precise measurement of REE.
Is It True that REE/RMR Could Be Determined Accurately by Measuring Either O2 or CO2? Indirect calorimetry accurately determines REE, i.e. RMR using Weir equation by only accurately measuring both O2 & CO2. CLICK HERE for Indirect Calorimetry (IC) in Clinical Application and REE determination, Journal of Internal Medicine: “In order to prevent under- and over-feeding and their related complications, it is important to accurately assess REE in individual patients and to ensure adapted nutrition support. IC is considered as the gold standard to this purpose and ideally any patients in whom energy needs are uncertain should be measured. Recent developments should facilitate the widespread use of IC in medical routine and promote better clinical outcomes.”

While calculations provide population average RMR/REE, clinical studies have indicated calculated RMR/REE using metabolic equation for a patient is misleading due to errors as much as 1000 kcal per day. With Breezing, accurate REE/RMR/RQ measurement, by measuring both (O2/CO2 in breath with low test costs, is possible.
