Pulmonary Fibrosis

  1. A large Assisi Loop should be used to treat the chest of the pet.
  2. Position the pet lying down either flat on the ground, up on their elbows, sitting, or being held.
  3. If the pet is small enough, the Assisi Loop can be placed around the chest of the pet.
  4. Placing the Assisi Loop over the head:
    1. Place the Assisi Loop over the head of the pet with the signal generator toward the ground.  Place the top of the Loop at the deepest part of the chest, this will allow proper treatment as well as help hold the Loop in place.  See Picture and Diagram
    2. If the pet is head shy, cover their eyes while placing the Loop over their head.
    3. CAUTION:  Do not force the pet’s shoulders, haunches, or torso through the coil.  If they do not slip easily through the coil, place the coil flat against, over, or under animal’s torso, as shown in the related images.  Forcing the animal through the coil can be traumatic to the pet and may overly stress the connection of the coil to the circuit board inside the Loop case.
  5. Medium- to large-sized pets – If the pet is too large for the above placement, the Assisi Loop can be placed on the side of the chest over the area that is to be treated.  See Pictures
  6. Giant or wide-breed dogs (Rottweilers, Mastiffs, Newfoundlands, . . .) – Two Assisi Loops can be used simultaneously to treat both sides.  One Assisi Loop can be used on the two sides consecutively, but there should be 2 hours in between sessions for optimal battery longevity.
  7. An Assisi LOOP-AID can be used and the Assisi Loop attached to the garment with two Velcro straps to maintain the Loop position with the center of the Assisi Loop over the chest/lungs/thorax.  See Pictures
  8. The signal generator should be located in view of the person treating the pet.
  9. Do not leave the pet unattended when using this placement as small movements can change the positioning of the Loop and the area being treated.
  10. Turn the unit on by pressing the button on the front of the white rubberized signal generator; green lights will illuminate about once per second.
  11. Keep the unit in place for the full 15 minutes until the unit shuts off.
  12. In cases of respiratory distress, use the unit every 2 hours until clinical signs have resolved.  Treat twice daily for an additional 5 days.  Then use as needed.
  13. There should be a minimum of 2 hours between treatments for optimal nitric oxide enhancement.

Pet Owner Responsibility. A panel of licensed, experienced veterinarians has developed this Guide.  Pet owners should use this protocol only to treat a condition listed above and as directed by a qualified veterinary clinician.  Other protocols in this Guide should be used only as directed by a qualified veterinary clinician.

Important: Before starting treatment, please consult product label for optimal product use and safety guidelines. To learn more about the technology, visit our website.

Battery Life: When the lights are blinking 2-3 times per second, the battery is running low and a new Assisi Loop should be purchased. There should be a minimum of 2 hours between treatments for optimal battery efficiency.
